There are times when a mountaineering expedition turns into an absolute nightmare—even if you reach the summit and sometimes because of it. Fortunately, our two stalwart mountaineers are unaware of what lies ahead of them on this tour. They wordlessly fight their way through snow and ice but never lose sight of their target, even through the thickest fog and falling rocks. Just as the summit photo op comes into view, their expedition takes an unexpected turn. Viacruxis is a thoughtfully animated stop-motion film about the obstacles one must face on the mountain— big and small.
