This film features Australian freeskier Andrea Binning and her family, pro skier husband Stian Hagen and their two kids, Aksel, aged 12 and Camila, nine, and documents their life in Chamonix in the heart of the French Alps.

For Andrea and Stian the decision to have kids was a major one that inevitably affected their pro skiing careers as priorities changed. The film explores that decision and the impact children “can have on your time, values, and sense-of-self”.

Growing up in Chamonix has provided unique opportunities and experiences for Aksel and Camila, opportunities that are enhanced by having adventurous parents who aren’t afraid to give their kids a bit of freedom.
