Depot Manchester Ines Papert, one of the strongest female alpinists in the world, takes her audience on a fascinating journey through her multifaceted world of alpinism. She follows the footsteps of legends into a rugged headwall in Patagonia, takes her son into the Canadian wilderness and repeats one of the hardest alpine mixed-routes in dizzying heights. Her audience partakes in her free ascents on Cima Grande in the Dolomites and climbs a new route on Mt. Waddington in Canada. Papert takes the path less beaten, shifts the realm of what is possible with her iron will and shows what it means to be an extreme climber and mother.

"Riders on the Storm“ means fulfilling a long-time dream for Papert. After years of dedicated preparation she is ready to face tough alpine walls and uncertain weather. She talks about the Dolomites where she is the first to free a route through the north face of the Große Zinne in one of the rainiest summers. Papert's lively and honest way of telling her stories let her audience feel the physical and mental hardships she constantly faces to reach her goals. She speaks fondly of her ice tools and her send of a 250 meter long crack roof in Switzerland. She climbs "Ritter der Kokosnuss" along a row of hanging icicles and accomplishes her climb of one of the hardest mixed-routes in traditional climbing manner. Papert also talks about traditions in climbing as well as in her Bavarian home of Berchtesgaden and gives us honest glimpses of her private life.

Scenes from her family life show the importance of her role as mother. She describes how she took off to the Canadian wilderness with her son to show him her world of solitude and quiet. You can tell that it is the greatest joy for her to see her son follow in her footsteps. She explains her fear about him, which she tries to fade-out while staying aware of her responsibility. Breathtaking pictures from Canada document the adventurous time and the unique bond that connects Papert and her 13-year-old son on the steep walls in the Rocky Mountains.
