Synopsis

What is better: to touch the sky with your fingers, do it individually or try to climb it collectively creating a castle?

Three cultures — Catalan, Chilean, and Indian — are trying to do the same thing: join forces to achieve collective success. The construction of human towers serves to bring dozens of men and women to join Vilafranca del Penedès, Santiago de Chile and Mumbai to go further. A passion that transcends races, borders and ages and that, in times of crisis, gives meaning to collective hopes and the ability to overcome the most impossible obstacles.

A global story about the surrender, courage and tension of towers made by and with human beings.
