A journey from the Swiss mountains to China.
Aging farmer Adrien is a quiet man from a mountain village in the Swiss Alps. He convinces his friends to accompany him on a train ride to Beijing by way of the Trans-Sib...展开erian Express. At the last minute, they are joined by the talkative Roger. Going through Berlin, Moscow, and Mongolia, Adrien's companions drop out until he is left with his polar opposite, Roger. In Ulanbaatar, Roger takes off with a Mongolian woman leaving Adrien to continue his journey alone.
