Alex Honnold is a top American climber and one of the most versatile of his generation. The film follows a 23-year-old Alex on an exploit that will ensure he goes down as one of the greats: the free solo climb of one of North America’s most magnificent rock formations. Starting from the sands of the Utah desert, this film takes us to the foot of the North-West Face of Half Dome, a 2700-metre high granite giant standing in the Yosemite National Park. Alex uses all of his perseverance and great skill to realise his dream and set a new benchmark in rock-climbing.
