The culture of one of the world’s most unusual and spectacular team endeavors—the building of multi-storey human towers, which stems from parallel traditions in Catalonia and India—provides the framework for this exhilarating story of perseverance and triumph. Following teams from India, Chile, and Spain, The Human Tower unfolds as three separate dramas connected by common themes of passion and teamwork that transcend race, age, and national borders. Cutting among the three countries, the film leads up to a breathtaking climactic scene that highlights each team’s individual challenges and accomplishments.
