Alex Honnold wants to fulfill his great dream and climb to the top of El Capitan in the Yosemite National Park. To be precise – he wants to climb without protection to a nearly vertical wall with a height of 2300 meters. The film crew accompanying him watch closely his struggles, they must also take special care and not to influence the hero of the film by their presence. It rarely happened that the document hold viewers in such a huge tension. Unusual views of nature, monumental and powerful against the fragile human life.
