A display case of the Teylers Museum in Haarlem shows a chunk of rock that was supposedly cut from the peak of the Mont Blanc by alpinist Horace-Bénédict de Saussure in 1787. In this absurdist short film full of fragments of pictures and phone conversations, two men that remain completely anonymous make a brave attempt to return the tip to its original place and retrieve the origin of the underlying story.
