Boris was a Ukrainian-Canadian mountaineer whose love for mountains was deeply spiritual. Now, his family must face their first expedition without him as they take his ashes to Patagonia – a place he considered Heaven on Earth. A contrast of laughter and tears, BORIS is a story about finding meaning after loss, and the power of nature to heal and unite us.
