Two young men, J. und Jo, have spent the night together. To get to know each other better, they decide to go hiking in the mountains for a few days. The trip begins with tenderness and consideration. They enjoy spending time together and have no great need to talk much. But, bit by bit, the magic is displaced by disenchantment and emptiness. In the middle of nowhere, surrounded by a vast expanse of nature and silence, a storm brews up between J. and Jo which ends in an eruption. A psychodrama based in large part on improvisation.
