Tracking the Soul

“You're only in there for a couple of minutes maybe. But in your head it goes on and on for hours, you see? Sometimes you just can't get enough of it...and then... you always want to be like this.” A camera team accompanies two young and reckless cross-country skiers. The whole winter they are in search of the perfect track, travelling through the Alps in a run-down bus. In the end they’ll get to the bottom of what it means to dedicate everything to a single cause, how to treat your soul faithfully and how long you can survive on canned tomatoes and instant hot chocolate.
