The story of a blind adventurer taking on an absurdly improbable challenge; kayaking the Grand Canyon. He desires the elusive state of being that so many of us seek; to be engaged in the present moment. “It’s so hard to be fully in the moment because there’s so much fear, there’s so much anxiety, it’s like a person looking through a window at an experience rather than being in the experience.” — Erik Weihenmayer. Grand Prize winner at the 2018 Banff Mountain Film festival in Canada.
