The history of the Chamonix Guides Cie is inextricably linked with that of mountaineering and the valley that gave birth to it. For 200 years, guides have been able to take up multiple challenges, making their organization a myth. Today they are the actors of a changing mountain: overcrowding, global warming, loss of freedom, the causes are multiple. Paradoxically, their heritage places them at the heart of the matter, while giving them the keys to implement solutions in order to perpetuate their practices in an ethical and responsible manner. Armed with their stories, they are now carriers of strong and essential values, and must act and adapt their outlook once again in order to face the current upheavals. This film is at a crossroads. Between tradition and modernity, it traces the history of the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix by evoking the incredible challenges it has faced with dignity and those now facing it. In this story we are all tied up !
