Beyond the Summits
55' / 2004
February 2004. Eight European women, mothers with children, want to conquer the highest summit of the America's : the 7000 meters Mount Aconcagua.
But it’s not an all-day dream. All these women share one common past : they have fought and overcome breast cancer.
Since their illness, they have fought against the label of being a patient forever. Now, the mountain is the antidote.
Especially for one of the ladies, with whom the cancer reoccurred only three months ago.
