Traverse highlights the power of five women through various collective experiences, one at the crossroads of dance, movement and voice, in a unity of experience that illustrates a journey that is not personal, but collective. This initiative unfolds in natural and artificial structures such as an ancient massive wall, stairs carved in stone, a perilous bridge: places that these women occupy and cross. In this way, they discover openings and links, and meet strangers on similar journeys. The film stands out for its original cinematography.
