Martina Halik and her 60 year old mother, Tania, embark on a six-month ski trek through the treacherous Coast Mountains of British Columbia. This journey has only been completed once before, and never by a female duo. Woven through their arduous and uplifting story are vignettes of others who have chosen a mountain life: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; and a couple who has been living off grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything - comfort, family, personal safety - for a life in the mountains?
