Aegeri, in a remote part of Switzerland, is one of the few lakes in Central Europe where professional log rafters can still be found. This film is based on the gentle observation of the work of a group of these rafters who follow a unique tradition that has not been impacted by modern technology. Adopting a respectful approach to woodland management, the film offers a deep insight into the work that takes place in the forest, including wood cutting as well as log rafting.
