Thirty athletes from 23 different nations race through the Alps from Salzburg, Austria, to Monaco on the Mediterranean coast. Travelling by foot or flying with a paraglider alone, they have to fight their way through some of the world's most beautiful and terrifying terrain. The documentary shows the competitors at their highest moments, soaring beautifully several thousand meters in the air through awe-inspiring mountains, and also at their deepest lows, as they trudged through heavy rain. Considering an average sleeping time of three hours per day and loss in body weight of up to 10 kg during the race, it becomes clear what it takes to be a Red Bull X-Alps athlete.
