Before exit restrictions and bans on contact begin to dominate the news in March 2020, the Mountain Tribe Crew embarks on a ski touring adventure in the Ötztal Alps. An old customs hut on the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road, which is closed in winter, serves as accommodation. The pandemic situation is worsening faster than expected. The initially euphoric mood fades and an inner tension spreads among freeriders. After extensive contact with the valley, relatives and the police, the decision is made to end the film project early. However, the quarantined Ötztal and restrictions applied make it difficult to travel home.
