On the southern face of the Himalayas, at an altitude of 7,400 meters, a mountaineer begins to feel ill. His partner gives the cry of alarm and starts one of the most incredible rescue operations in the history of the mountain range. Iñaki Ochoa de Olza is the mountaineer who fell ill while ascending Annapurna, considered one of the most dangerous peaks in the world, as 40% of the people who try to climb it lose their lives in the attempt.
Pura Vida rebuilds an unprecedented rescue mission, an operation that brought together 8 people from disparate backgrounds but with one thing in common: the boundless passion for the mountains they climb and, above all, some principles and values that define the unique way, intense, and often misunderstood, that they have chosen to live their lives.

The film is a journey that represents the main values and the essence of human nature.— Desnivel
The non-recreation of the scenes as happens in other films, gives the docudrama a touch of greater realism, accompanied by an impeccable style and photography where the mountaineer is the main protagonist.— 20minutos
