A documentary about Klára Kolouchová, the first Czech climber to conquer K2.
Klára is a mountain climber, a mother and a woman, and she is going to climb K2. To be a woman in a man’s world is not easy, but Klara pursues her dreams. She has already climbed Mount Everest; the deadlier K2 is next. Although her two previous attempts have failed, she is heading there again. A film about one individual’s need to challenge herself, the limits of endurance and the difficulties of balancing the roles of woman, mother and climber. Are women really free to attempt great achievements without neglecting their family responsibilities?
Dir. Jana Počtová, Czech Republic 2020, 93´
