Short synopsis:

In 1913, a fateful ski race took place in the Karkonosze, in which the then most successful Czech skier, Bohumil Hanč, died. Because of a snowstorm, all participants dropped out, only Hanč stayed behind. He froze to death and became a legend. In addition to the events that were already filmed in 1956, the film also shows the tensions between the German and Czech population before the First World War and focuses on a unknown hero: Emmerich Rath, a German participant who tried in vain to find his friend Hanč and to rescue him.
