“If you fall, bounce back, handle adversity and find always the courage and the energy to continue. Make your existence great!”
Eleonora ” Lola ” is a passionate climber in all season.
In March 2015, while she is climbing an icefall in Val Daone, she is victim of a dreadful accident in which she loses the use of her legs. For Lola, however, the desire to resume physical activity and dive back into the climbing is overwhelming, and after a few months of rehabilitation, she accepts without hesitation the proposal of Diego Pezzoli to climb, with special equipments, a way on the mythical El Capitan wall, in Yosemite National Park.
The film is a story of this experience, without wanting to be a history of the ascent, but rather a story of how she prepared and lived it, in a mix of carefree smiles, real action, nights in portal edge, hours and days together great friends.
“Thanks to this project, I could notice that real and recognizable power, in Eleonora” (Diego Pezzoli)
