Five Bolivian Indigenous women are involved in a unique expedition. As a symbol of liberation and empowerment, they propose to climb the highest mountain in the Americas. They are more than climbers, they are brave women who find, on 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 Earth. 82 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
