Katia, Closest to Heaven (2009)
What drives Katia Lafaille, a pretty young woman of thirty years old, mother of two children and widow of Jean Christophe Lafaille (a mountain climber who disappeared really close to the summit of Makalu-Himalaya), to get engaged in one of the most difficult walking treks in the world?
Mount Aconcagua, nicknamed "the giant of America," is located in Argentina, in the heart of the Andean range. Its highest peak rises at 6,900 meters. Katia Lafaille's trip is going to last no less than 13 days.
In this documentary, physical and psychological feats are linked in breath-taking mountain scenery.
