Country of Production: France
Every summer, more than 20,000 climbers tackle the Mont Blanc. Whether they are from France or elsewhere, these hiking and climbing enthusiasts sometimes take ill-considered risks to overcome the highest peak in the Alps. Despite a well known, accessible trail and the presence of mountain guides constantly keeping an eye on tourists, danger is everywhere. Falls, accidents, cold, storm...
A base-jumper accustomed to high-flying jumps, Roch Malnuit selects the highest rock faces from which to jump into the void in his wingsuit. His new challenge is an exceptional jump over the Mont Blanc, from a helicopter.
Finally, the film reveals the secrets of Chamonix, the resort that never sleeps. The Chamonix Valley attracts not only French but also foreign visitors, such as Americans who come to France to get married at the summit, or groups of Chinese in search of the perfect photo. From the Mer de Glace to the Aiguille du Midi, they will visit the resort in record time.
