Back to the Top

Leonidas is a 33 years old man, living between Athens and Thessaloniki. Drummer of a punk band and a passionate fossil collector he wants to climb up to the top of mount Olympos with the help of his friends.

For the last 7 years he has been living in a wheelchair, but he hasn’t stopped dreaming of the day that he’ll climb back to the top, just like he used to do in the past.

This is the trailer of the documentary film. Lower on this page you can watch the whole film.

It is an extremely dangerous endeavour, of a high risk, that no one has ever tried in the past. It will take a really good team in order to achieve it, a big group of people that should be able to collaborate successfully.
From the whole group, it’s only Leo that has ever done it again. But their passion unites them and gives the impression that it can make them overcome all obstacles.

They will meet people that know the challenges very well and will ensure them that “they are not going to make it” .
However, this team of “ninjas” is determined to move forward with it.

Leonidas finally Back to the Top, this time on a wheelchair, supported by a group of good friends.

They are ready to show everyone, that when there is a clear focus on the collective goal and the will to collaborate for it, even in the most unlikely circumstances, climbing the highest mountain may look like a game.
