An intimate and unflinching portrait of the solo free climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the 3,000ft rock cliff, El Capitan in Yosemite National Park – without a rope. A great athletic feat, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. While training, he begins to fall in love, threatening his focus and his mental armour of invincibility. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. The film-makers capture both the thrill of the climb and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential; whose human spirit triumphed.
