Attempts are made to reveal the secrets of the Red Mountain in an impossible film that exists nonetheless.
A man excavating a 4,000-year-old city; philosophers living in huts; children finding out something terrible; and a young woman who has disappeared. Something intangible between fact and fiction. In the end, fire and maybe truth. The mountain has its effect on everyone.
