A feel good film about four men, old friends, who decide to climb Mont Ventoux on their bikes, as they did 30 years before. On the way to the top they talk, mainly looking for answers to questions from the past and the present. And they do what men do so well, alternating between heavy seriousness and airy trivialities.
