On the journey to the "Roof of Africa" a father and 20-year-old son traverse the treacherous terrain of divorce, rebellion, dark secrets and old grudges, as they forge an authentic adult relationship. Trekking up the volcano, they explore how our stories about ourselves can imprison us in the past, and the necessity of letting go. The final all-night climb to the frozen summit becomes a rite of passage, as oxygen-deprivation turns them into shuffling, brain-dead zombles. The mountain too has a story to tell, a story about Climate Change and the future of humankind: a future clearly etched on Kilimanjaro's retreating glaciers.
