Living is Victory

Nepal, Annapurna's South Face, 8091 m high. The wall that seduced Jean Troillet and his team. A two month expedition to attempt to climb the 3000 m elegant Bonington route. Every day the climbers tame the mountain. They observe the face and its changes. They listen to the mountain until one day they have to admit that the face does not want them. This movie is not "on" or "about" the mountain, it's "with" the mountain. It is no longer a matter of victory or defeat, but a matter of mutual respect.
