On the last leg of her journey, Pia climbs the mountains of the Val Canale, heading into the Alps with a local biker gang she befriends at a village music festival. After miles on the bikes, then two hours on foot, they finally reach their goal - a remote lodge in the snow, which the bikers took four years to build. The whole gang celebrates into the night in traditional local fashion.
