As a professional snowboarder, Elias Elhardt has achieved what many others only dream of. He's aware that snowboarding for a living is a privilege, but he wonders how much longer he can reconcile the sport with his environmental conscience. Snowboarding is undoubtedly his dream job, and Elias has become a role model in the industry. As such, he must consider these questions: At what point does our passion for the mountains become ecologically destructive? How can we protect what we love? CONTRADDICTION is both a thoughtful film about the dichotomy inherent in pursuing one's passion and an ode to life in the mountains.
