Two young couples in snow-covered mountains: René and Laura learn to open up and reveal themselves to one another, while Marco and Rebecca engage in sex to suppress their problems. A fatal accident lurks in the background: the film presenter René went off with ski instructor Marco's car and is partly to blame for the death of an impoverished farmer's daughter.
