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 poetic testimony about time spent outdoors, with an, at times, humouristic note. This work mostly driven by a deep love to their environment, equally opens up a window onto the (daily) challenges and tasks and the danger the mountains can also bring.

It is a collage of personal stories overlapping with reflections and anecdotes of other female wanderers and mountaineers, such as Nan Shepherd (The Living Mountain) and Rebecca Solnit (Wanderlust).
