Synopsis: Told through the eyes of a 6-year-old climber who goes by the name of Brave Girl, this documentary captures the experience of climbing a new mountain for the first time, no matter the size of the human or the mountain. The film tells the story of Brave Girl who is embarking on the longest hike of her life, accompanied by her mentor and grandpa, 66-year-old Grandpa Gary. In early spring, the pair sets out into the high desert of Southwest Wyoming with the goal of summiting an isolated sandstone chimney. In order to make it to the top, the team will have to overcome the unpredictable early-season elements, a grueling approach, and technical route finding as they attempt to make the first documented ascent of this unnamed peak in Wyoming.
As Brave Girl’s mountains are getting taller and Grandpa Gary’s mountains are getting smaller, we see the two adventurers at a moment in time when they are the perfectly-matched mountain climbing duo
