Piotr „Mad“ Korczak is a legend among Polish climbers. He initiated the whole range of various techniques of „conquering“ the walls, and was the first to begin to consider climbing as a sport, what took him to participate in numerous contests and world climbing competitions. This year Piotr celebrates his 50th birthday. Film director Marcin Koszalka asks him inevitable questions about the impact of age: How does he deal with the passage of time? How does he perceive youth and growing old? How he expects his end will look like?
