The Conquest of High Passes

6 

How to act when you are in top shape mentally but the body doesn’t respond that way? Bas, Roelof and Evert are physically handicapped. Nevertheless they embark on a 1000 km bike trip across the Himalayas. From Lhasa to Kathmandu conquering mountain passes over 5000 meters high. The documentary explores the fraction in their lives and the battle between the mind and the disobedient body in quest for a new balance.
