The Aljaž Turret has been standing on top of Triglav, 2864 m a.s.l., for 120 years. It is a cultural monument of exceptional value. Who erected it and why, who took care of it and how, what is the turret's history, and what its meaning? What does it mean to the Slovenes today? And what can we do for its preservation? Its history, which in a way is also the history of the Slovenians from the late 19th century onwards, provides the story line of the film.
