Mountains Malbec and Men

  • Allyn Thompson wears many titles. Woman. Black. Educated. Professional. Divorcee. Hiker. But the one title she wants most is Mom. After another failed pregnancy attempt, she kicks off her Plan B, hiking the Cordillera Huayhuash Circuit in The Andes Mountains, to move on from her fertility failure. While preparing for this hike of a lifetime, she visits trails new and old and grapples with how to move on or not from her fertility dream. When she can't go to The Andes, she opts to roadtrip across the US, encountering new people and places who reinforce and challenge her views on what a fulfilled life means.
