Live for Passion - About the film

If mountains have a soul, then it is majestic. It was 90 years ago when a young student proved what was then unimaginable. Wieslaw Stanislawski climbed new and difficult routes of the biggest walls in the Slovak Tatras. With only hemp rope around his waist, he climbed with unbelievable passion and desire. In the winter conditions of Tatra walls, two friends ventured out to follow in his footsteps. They connect his routes, and mountains connect their thoughts. In the breaking avalanches, in the sun's rays, they find Stanislawski's message: if one does something from the bottom of his heart, he does it best.
