Have you heard about Jean Yves Fredriksen’s crossing of the entire Himalaya range, paragliding and bivouac? Probably not, and yet, it is possibly one of the most extraordinary adventures of the 21st century! This film revisits the most incredible moments of Jean-Yves 4 month trip. Alone, with his camera and his violin as his only companions, Jean-Yves shares the highs, lows, fears and doubts which accompany him on this wonderful and sometimes hostile flight.
