Synopsis: Discover what happens when seven ordinary men, looking for a bigger life, decide to hit the reset button. Training hard, stronger than they’ve ever been, they go mano a mano with “her”: Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina, one of the infamous Seven Summits—22,834 feet high and spoiling for a fight. For many, this will be an adventure story about pushing your edge—and that’s reason enough to watch. But how often have you said, I can’t , to your dream? For all those who see only roadblocks on the road to a bigger life, this is a film about breaking through. Is it time to hit your reset button?

Director's Statement

I believe that theory will only take us so far in our own human evolution. The Aconcagua Man Project was an experiential nature program that led to this highly acclaimed documentary film, “Climb to Freedom.” This film chronicles the transformation of seven men on a yearlong journey to climb a high mountain, and bring the application of that experience back to their lives and relationships.
