    Six years ago a near fatal parachute accident rendered Norwegian Karina Hollekim, one of the world’s greatest female extreme sport personalities, confined to a wheelchair with the grim verdict of never being able to walk again. Refusing to accept the devastating limitations of such a future, she forced herself through years of countless surgeries and intense rehabilitation and eventually succeeds, through what can only be described as unadulterated willpower, to get back on her feet. 

    But for a woman whose entire life has derived its meaning from adrenaline and adventure, however, merely regaining the ability to walk isn’t enough. With a significant handicap Karina sets out to ski the famous Haute Route, known to some as one of the most coveted and demanding ski trips in the world. As the trek commences it becomes painfully clear that this is not just an expedition through the highest, most dramatic peaks of the Alps over hundred miles from Chamonix to Zermatt. This is a journey into the mind who lives to push limits and how toughness converges humility as Karina’s final test of physical rehabilitation forces her to come to terms with a new reality.
