Andy Parkin is regarded as one of the world's finest alpine climbers. But in 1984 he suffered a near fatal climbing accident in the Alps. His slow rehabilitation involved painting and sculpting the mountains that had so very nearly claimed his life. Now Andy is known as much for his inspirational artwork as his return to climbing. 

'This eloquent and insightful film reveals the mind of an inspiring alpinist and artist.' - Simon Yates, mountaineer and author

'An extraordinary film about an extraordinary person. It goes well beyond the surface gloss of most climbing related films, delving deep into the heart of what it means to be a human being in the mountains, an artist, an adventurer and a survivor. This portrait of Parkin is unintrusive, poetic, moving and completely believable; all-in-all a beautiful bit of filmmaking.' - Ian Parnell, renowned British alpinist and photographer
