In 1985, Christophe Profit is 24 years old. He is considered one of the best mountaineers in the world. This film follows him attempting solo the western face of the Drus, in the Mont Blanc Massif. The chosen route is the 'American direct', 1100 meters of vertical and smooth rock. Profit will achieve the feat of climbing the wall in free solo, without using a rope or any belaying technique, all in less than three hours. In the manner of a brief tale, this vertiginous film follows Profit in his progress, with the unique sound of his breath and the wind. Awarded in many mountain film festivals, this great documentary is a wonderful testimony of the passion of a man for climbing, mountains and adventure.
