This is an poignant and cinematic short film about female climber Jenny Abegg, portraying her climbing process from a unique perspective. The only event taking place during the short running time of the film is the 7-hour long vertical climb to the top. Add to this an inner voice as the narrative, and some cross over with videos of her falling deeper and deeper into water and walking barefoot and alone over a frozen lake. The end product stimulates the female climber’s inner senses for the audience. Director Henna Taylor has made a number of mountain films reflecting a detailed sensibility, and many of them, including this one, have been introduced at various mountain film festivals.
