Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the Alps. He is a loner, the regularly changing scientists who share the rocky idyll with him are just tolerated by him. Making things more difficult is the approaching visit of the environment minister, which brings rivalries at the station to the boil.
So everyone involved is grateful when their barren routine is interrupted by a strange discovery. A red liquid pours from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust shrinking with climate change. This "glacier blood" turns out to be a very special juice, with unimagined effects on the local animals.
Soon Janek has his hands full defending himself and the station against a growing horde of monstrosities: biological ones lurking outside, human ones inside. And as if all that wasn't already dangerous enough, his heart also threatens to break: among the minister's entourage is Tanja, who is the only one who knows the reason for Janek's self-chosen isolation...
