One night. On deserted ski slopes, the night ride of the groomers is about to begin. Antoine, 25 years old, joins his team. In the middle of the world, the hypnotic ballet of the machines that tirelessly shape the landscape starts. Suddenly the mountain growls. Stopped in the night, Antoine begins a journey in between where the myths of a mountain both feared and venerated are embodied.
