Men Who Wanted to Climb
This is the story of Raul and Pere, a mountaineer and filmmaker united by a common dream: to climb a mountain higher than 8,000 meters for the first time. For months, the filmmaker and mountaineer travel the Himalayas in search of life experiences and finish by climbing the eighth highest mountain of the world, the 8,163 meter Manaslu. The film not only recounts the experiences and adventures of the expedition, but also tries to dig deeper into the issues that lie behind the transcendental spiritual and inescapable need to roam the mountains.
