"A group of enthusiastic motorcyclists in Vienna in 1926 decided to make a film about the Dolomites. After an initial inspection of the shipment is carefully prepared, but mishaps, accidents, delays, lawsuits and bureaucratic obstacles in the cast delay the start of filming. Reduced by technical means, in just two weeks, the cast makes the film an extraordinary trip to the Dolomites. They climb on a motorcycle Tofane reaching Rifugio Cantore at 2588 m above sea level. Shooting of mountain and passion for motors come together in this sports documentary and quality issues, and represents a unique era in sports filmmaking. The star of the film are the bikes, which are present in almost all the shots, and alpine landscapes that captivate the audience as actors." - Ripartizione Cultura Italiana
