15 years ago, a group of climbers found and cleaned hundreds of boulders near the Swiss village of Ausserferrera, creating what became known as Magic Wood, one of the most famous bouldering areas in the world. But the huge popularity eventually led to trouble with the local people. The film provides an insight into the attraction of bouldering and sheds light on the events that have made Magic Wood what it is today.
