In the Appenzell hinterland in the heart of winter at 5 o'clock in the morning: men and boys dressed in colourful traditional clothing pull a wagon on which a long decorated tree trunk is placed: S'Bloch. In the evening, the tree trunk is auctioned in the village square. Why is it auctioned? The film goes into the background of this ancient custom of forest workers.
