THE TENTH STEP

A FILM BY THUNDER DRAGON

World-renowned Scottish expedition leader Gerry Moffatt has spent a lifetime guiding in the Himalayas – pioneering first descents on rivers, overlanding, climbing, and exploring remote places in Nepal, India, Tibet, Pakistan and Bhutan. Turning 50, he embarks on a solo motorcycle adventure across the length of the mighty Himalayas – from Ladakh to the eastern edge of Bhutan – to document and better understand the changes he’s witnessed over 30 years of living there.

As challenges and personal tragedies unfold, he discovers that the biggest changes over the past 30 years happened inside of him. The Tenth Step is an inspiring journey through self-discovery and recovery – set amidst a fascinating backdrop of adventure travel history.
