A story of post-traumatic growth

A mountain, a symbol, a dream or redemption?

Short Film Documentary Trailer


A woman in isolation is searching for strength. She finds guidance from her younger self who, ten years earlier, got through a life-shattering challenge when diagnosed with MS, against all odds recovered from a half-body paralysis and climbed a 9000 feet mountain.

Screening June 6th!

Based on a true story, the film depicts how post-traumatic growth unfolds after a terrifying life situation. The discovery of inner strength becomes apparent when realizing the paradox of accepting ones weakness makes us stronger.

  • I decided to make this film answering a pounding question:

    How do you value a moment that feels like failure?

  • When isolated

    the only thing I could read was my never finished manuscript draft, written years earlier. If the words in those pages didn’t help me in my moment of despair, then I would chuck it all out. But for my surprise, it gave me a spark to hang on, and slowly I continued with my film project.

  • “Accepting your weakness makes you stronger.”
