Synopsis: Three female athletes from the Balkans, in a unique and loving way retell their great passion for climbing, mountaineering and living between the wildest nature. Each one of them has highly demanding goals to achieve. This short movie peeks some of their successes and failures, through authentic art and extreme sports. This is their story!
Working with strong and inspiring female athletes opens a new sense from aesthetic point of view. It gives me the inspiration to create poetic and at the same time extreme vision for this documentary.
