Synopsis

FREE SOLO is an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of Alex Honnold, an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible, revealing the personal toll of excellence.

As the climber begins his training, the armor of invincibility he's built up over decades unexpectedly breaks apart when Honnold begins to fall in love, threatening his focus and giving way to injury and setbacks. Directors Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi succeed in beautifully capturing deeply human moments with Honnold as well as the death-defying climb with exquisite artistry and masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork.
