Five Bolivian indigenous women are involved in a unique expedition. As a symbol of liberation and empowerment, they propose to climb Aconcagua, the highest mountain in America. The image is amazing: they climb wearing their traditional skirt. They are more than climbers, they are brave women who find in the mountain a space to feel free, happy and alive. Their adventure will show the world an inspiring way to be a woman, to live tradition and to relate to Mother Nature.
