A contemplative walk leads to a bizarre climbing tour. The camera that has just panned over everyday village life now homes in on a construction of wooden slats to then follow a breakneck route up a vertical rock face. From the perspective of the invisible climber, we experience a seemingly impossible ascent while hearing his breath growing heavier and heavier with every move. Having reached the top, the camera roams one more time over the point of departure – the village now in the distance, only a few exciting minutes of film and a tangible eternity away below the rock face.
