A film about the mindset of rock-climbers. Stéphane and Alizée, two climbers looking for a breakthrough, spend their winter in “El Pati” (the playground), in Spain—the perfect place for climbing hard. Sometimes the hardest part is simply accepting that one is able to succeed. Success, more than a physical achievement, seems to be a state of mind.
Through rock climbing the film reflects on universal topics such as the pursuit of excellence, achievement of goals and life as a couple… THE BIG BOYS’ PLAYGROUND has the ambition to reach the general public, but at the same time it takes a critical look at already well-established climbing film industry.
