La Congenialita - The Attitude of Gratitude (Christian Schmidt)
As an alpinist, Simone prefers to take the hard way and has nearly 30 years of winter climbing experience. Tamara, on her way to achieving a successful career in ski mountaineering, is just 30 years old. Despite the age difference, these two shared a similar goal and their roles were clear — he the wise mentor, she the eager student. But as the team heads for Kanchenjunga to attempt the highest traverse across 8000 metre peaks, their roles begin to shift.
