Inspired by a heart-breaking true story, The Climb quietly explores the concept of feeling connected to someone you have lost by immersing yourself in something they love. The painful act of remembering by doing.
After the sudden death of her adventure-loving spouse, Julia decides it’s time for a fresh start abroad. Guided by an old climbing friend of her husband, she plucks up the courage to bid goodbye to her former life by doing one last thing – pushing herself to climb his favourite mountain for the first and only time.
A climb, both physical and mental.
"A beautiful film perfectly balancing what was, what is and what could be, and how hard those steps in between are".
