Alain Robert prefers glass and steel to rock and stone, and without ropes or safety equipment he has taken the art of climbing to dangerous new heights…
Having already conquered 80 of highest building’s on earth, Alain now has his sights on the only one to have eluded him: Malaysia’s Petronas Towers.
Driven by his failure to reach the summit on two previous occasions, he is planning one last attempt on the building that has become his nemesis.
Shot over two years, this film follows the world’s most daring free solo climber, across the globe, in the run up to his bid to scale the towers in September 2009.
