Thomas and Alexander Huber, risk takers in the extreme, rank as two of the best mountain climbers of our time. Now the two Huber brothers have set out to break the record in speed climbing at the wall of all walls, the 1000 foot vertical "Nose" of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California.

Featuring breathtaking footage of the mountains of Patagonia and Yosemite National Park, Academy Award« winner Pepe Danquart follows the Huber brothers to locations never before reached by a film crew. TO THE LIMIT is a portrait of two competitive brothers who go to the very edge of the possible, physically and psychologically.

For two brothers who though only two years apart live very different and separate lives, they virtually sync together like twins when they jointly climb aspiring peaks as they have since childhood, each driven to search for his own limits.

TO THE LIMIT completes a trilogy of sports films by Pepe Danquart, the other films being HOME MATCH (2000), (German film prize for Best Director) and HELL ON WHEELS (2004).
