Captured through the eyes of a local clique of snowboarders, the film goes beyond the known clichés of “Jetset” culture and weighs in on alternate lifestyles in a living environment where winter sport was founded and sophisticated traditions are well preserved.
Acquaintances on both the rebellious and the omnipresent luxurious side of village life gave director Kris Lüdi the understanding for the present dichotomy that is eventually translated into a visual juxtaposition underlined with self-reflected thoughts in the ancient local language Rumantsch.
