The two young Allgäu climbers Holger Wendel and Thomas Burger enter the infamous Eiger North Wall without informing anyone. A sudden fall in the weather in the middle of the wall puts them in an icy inferno: lightning, avalanches and cold. On a small heel, they wait nine days for the ever-closer death. Gerhard Baur, who accidentally discovers the tent of the two mountaineers left at the foot of the wall, sets a rescue operation in motion, as if by a miracle both survive. In his film, Baur reconstructs the real events.
