A daredevil couple risks it all by going where no one has gone before: the top of the world’s second-highest skyscraper. Angela and Vanya are Russia’s preeminent rooftoppers who defy the odds (and death) to scale the globe’s tallest buildings. As their acrobatic stunts go viral and rack up millions of online views, they put their love and trust to the test as they create a highly dangerous new artform that they call “skywalking.”

XYZ Films will be releasing the film in select IMAX US cinemas for one-week only, beginning 12th July.

Releasing globally on Netflix on 19th July.
