    • Synopsis
    • A luxury ski resort in Switzerland.
      12-year-old Simon lives in the industrial valley below, with his jobless sister. Every day, he takes the ski-lift to the opulent ski world above, stealing equipment from the rich tourists to resell to the local kids back down.
      As he partners with a crooked British seasonal worker, Simon loses his boundaries, which affects the relationship with his sister.
      Confronted with a truth they had both been escaping, Simon seeks refuge up above.
