Synopsis: A journey of formation through the lands and peaks of Patagonia. Silvia meets Stefano during training in the bouldering hall.

The climb to Fitz Roy becomes for Silvia the last difficulty to face to definitively overcome her fears. Will she find a new way in her life?
We met Silvia and Stefano just before they left. They seemed to be a solid and enthusiastic couple at the idea of leaving for a new and challenging adventure. They had resigned from a safe job in Italy, with the idea of experiencing the thrill of facing the world and the Fitz Roy, strong of the typical enthusiasm of their age. We met them again 4 months later. Transformed. Tired and tested, but full of an even more intense love for mountains and especially for freedom. This is their story.
