Director's notes
The idea was to create a touching and humorous, mockumentary-style story about father and son.
Superficially, dad is training to climb the highest mountains of the world, with the assistance of his rather bored son.
However, looking closer, we realize that those weekly training sessions are dad’s inventive way of spending some quality time with his son.
Ultimately, the underlying message is one of humanism, love and the spirit of perseverance.
