A 60-year old woman's incredible attempt to race to the South Pole, carrying a call for compassion. A grandmother of two, Tess Burrows came to climbing late in life when she found her true calling in campaigning for the Tibetan cause. Here, she races to the South Pole to promote world peace. She not only learns to push the limits of the human body, but also to push out the reaches of the human spirit. She and her partner, Pete, join the historic South Pole race to compete with Olympic champion James Cracknell and Ben Fogle. To complete this mission they have to battle severe medical problems, lack of money, hardship, and deprivation. For Tess it is more than combating cold hands with a warm heart, it is also a journey to push past the influences of the human mind.
