A young man with a dream: to walk on a wire tied to the twin towers in New York. A documentary about Philippe Petit, a frenchman that followed his passion of being a ‘wirewalker’ and try his skills on a few of the most famous buildings. However, the anecdote of the process to walk between the World Trade Centre Towers, as artistic and as beautiful as it was, is the main story of this documentary that also has a few Michael Nyman’s pieces on the back.
