This short film is about rock-climbing legend Paul Pritchard, and his attempt to finally conquer the Totem Pole in Tasmania, a 'fearsome sea-stack' which 18 years ago almost cost Paul his life. The aftermath of his accident in 1998 left him with hemiplegia, which means he has little feeling or movement in the right side of this body. Against the coastal backdrop of stunning Tasmania, Paul returns to the Totem Pole to find out if he has recovered enough to at last finish the climb.
