From the arctic north through Sibiria, Alaska and finally down to Louisiana, we followed the signs
of climatic changes back through the centouries. We passed by the famous Galcierworld of
Spitzbergen, met reindeernomads in Tschukotka, visited a whale cemetary, found a mammoth tusk
near the Yukon and finally we cought an Alligator Gar in the Mississippi in Louisiana.
Dr. Gabriel was not only a med. doctor, he also took lessons in geology, geography and biology
abou 1930, he and his wife Agnes explored Persia and crossed the salty dessers of the country,
even the "Dash e Lut" was not to hot for them. We followed their tracks, shot a lot reenactment scenes
and pictures of modern live in iran. On one hand oilspray to stop shifting sand dunes, on
the other hand, trades, like milling grain in Kubonan, that hasn't change since Marco Polo.
Two brothers, Alexander and Thomas Huber, tried to climb »The Nose«,

A Film about brotherhood, about two different characters,
about crossing human and personal limits!
