In the high desert of South America, winter takes hold, devouring bleached bones and abandoned shacks. Into these most inhospitable of lands, a handful of drifters emerge from the whiteout, ready to cast their lot on forsaken peaks both merciless and magnificent. Venturing beyond the frontiers of most mountain films, Solitaire is backcountry skiing forged in the tradition of Western cinema. Born in the spires of Argentinas legendary Las Lenas, a lonely two-year journey begins through an abandoned world, wandering the length of a continent from Perus Cordillera Blanca to Chilean Patagonia.
