In his youth, Sean ONeill suffered an injury that left him paralyzed. However confined the accident rendered his body, he retained a vigorous spirit that pushes him to fight against self-pity and surrender. This past winter, that spirit lured ONeill to attempt a daunting achievement: an ice ascent of Bridal Veil Falls, right here in Telluride and considered by many to be the most difficult waterfall ice climb in North America. Directed by ONeills brother Timmy ONeill, one of the worlds premiere climbers and a perennial Mountainfilm guest Prevail is beautifully shot and touchingly told.
