Competition

With hundreds of kilos on their backs they are going through storms, blizzards and deep snow. Their craft is not just a profession, but also their way to tranquility. “Freedom under Load” introduces the oldest generation of porters in the High Tatra Mountains, who climb with supplies to the mountain huts every day. We discover why they have chosen this way of life and why they remain the last of the Mohicans on the European continent. We might find out something about the burden we carry ourselves.
