A film about the extraordinary life of Andy Parkin, an artist and one of the world’s leading solo climbers. Andy is regarded as one of the world’s finest alpine climbers. In 1984, he suffered a near-fatal climbing accident in the Alps. This documentary captures Andy’s journey into slow rehabilitation, which involved painting and sculpting the mountains that had so very nearly claimed his life and has subsequently caused him to become known as much for his inspirational artwork, as his return to climbing. Filmed over 2 years and working very closely with Andy both in the UK and French Alps, the film is a sensitive portrayal of an extraordinary man and life in adaptation.
