“This Mountain Life” Martina Halik and her 60-year-old mother Tania attempt a bitterly

the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around it.
Shot in cinematic detail, This Mountain Life is a riveting examination of human passion
set high in the peaks of British Columbia, Canada.
