The mountains, an archaic powerful environment.
Existing as if beyond time, guardians of this world. A soul landscape.
What is the fascination with this environment that some feel?
This film is a collaboration and meeting point of the two performers, two women with a special relationship to the mountains. It is inspired by the meaning that this environment has for them personally.
It is a collage of personal stories overlapping with stories and anecdotes of other female wanderers and mountaineers, such as Nan Shepherd (The Living Mountain) and Rebecca Solnit (Wanderlust).
