Scaling the Depths : Annapurna

Dark and funny, this European premiere is set in a remote mobile home in the Rocky Mountains, where the poet and former alcoholic Ulysses lives a secluded life.

Trying to finish his magnum opus before he succumbs to cancer, his self-imposed exile is ended by the sudden appearance of his ex-wife Emma, who walked out on him with their five-year-old son twenty years before. She immediately starts cleaning up his dilapidated trailer,  bringing long-forgotten emotions to the fore. Kate Gleason as Emma is excellent, having won awards for the role stateside; Englishman Howard Nightingall plays Ulysses with an educated, deliberate Southern drawl. While the plot twists are predictable, they are no less heart-wrenching.
