A cowboy poet down on his luck in a run-down trailer in Colorado and Emma, his East Coast, one-time wife, who appears out of the blue after 20 years, strive to find answers to burning questions from the past.

At once compelling, funny, moving, devastating and hopeful, it is a tour de force for two outstanding actors and an absolute joy to witness.

Annapurna in Nepal is the most dangerous mountain in the world to climb and it is an allegory for the journey of love that Emma and Ulysses undertake as time begins to run out.
