In a simple story, told as a local legend and set against the breathtakingly awesome Swiss Alps, a young man and his uncle go mountain climbing one day and mysteriously disappear after an avalanche -- or do they? Antoine (Jacques Penot) has just gotten married and leaves his bride behind to go on a skiing excursion with his uncle (Bruno Cremer) up the mountain behind their village of Derborence. After an avalanche apparently buries them alive, nine weeks go by and then Antoine comes back to the village. At first, everyone thinks he is a ghost, they cannot believe he really survived all that time. The catch is that Antoine is certain his uncle is still alive, and is determined to go back up and look for him -- leaving his now-pregnant wife behind him once more.
