IMDB Trailer



There's something about watching other people do amazing things that terrify most of us.

Marc-Andre Leclerc was an amazing young man who had a love for free climbing and pushing his body to the limits. He climb some of the worlds most dangerous mountains and loved every minute of it, but tragedy always seems to strike when you least expect it. An avalanche during a climb took the life of this amazing climber. His body still hasn't been found.

This documentary tells about Marc-Andre's life and death and how he touched so many people around him. The movie is extremely well done and portrays Leclerc in a wonderful light. A must for all documentary enthusiasts like me.
