The way to the top is long and arduous. Most give up early, others are forced to retreat later. Only the best hold out to the end and overcome every obstacle.
Swiss director Fabian Weber paints a powerful picture of ski racer Gilles Roulin lying on the ground and getting up again. The cineastic homage to the power of will shows in a spectacular way how the exceptional athlete confronts one’s weaker self, defies all injuries and adversities and fights until he finally arrives at his destination: at the start of the most demanding downhills in the world.
But that‘s not all. In order to be one of the few to make it to the top, he must continue to take on every challenge and always grow beyond himself. Always with the belief that he can make the impossible possible
