No one has pushed the limits as often as Reinhold Messner has. On the rock, on the 8000m peaks, and in the ice deserts of our planet. In his lecture he talks about his youth in the Dolomites, about the Himalayas, the North Pole, Greenland and his mountain museums. He talks about the fading glaciers, and dares to depict a picture of the future of the Alps. The presented pictures and film shots transmit Messners attitudes, his love of risk, his way of behaving in dangerous situations and dealing with challenges. A great adventure.
