Cara E. Yar Khan's Grand Canyon Expedition will be filmed to create a documentary called HIBM: Her Inescapable Brave Mission, a story that encapsulates the fear, excitement, ambition, determination, courage, and relentless psychological and physical struggles that come with living with a debilitating progressive disease and breaking down endless barriers faced by people with disabilities. Cara will candidly share her most raw and intimate thoughts and feelings about her unexpected life and shine the spotlight on the adversity faced by other people with disabilities around the world to help shatter stigma and end discrimination.
Poised at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Cara along with an award winning entourage of film producers, wranglers and white water rafters, will begin a 12-day expedition striding on horseback as they descend nearly 6000 feet of vertical loose terrain into the country’s deepest canyons. Three days later when they enter the heart of the Inner Gorge, they will encounter the Colorado River, America’s lifeblood of the West. Here where the water meets the rocks, they will dismount from their saddles and set off by boat, for 8 days navigating over 150 miles of the United States' biggest white water rapids.
Throughout this journey, in a harsh and unforgiving wilderness, the expedition will challenge and highlight the integrity of the human spirit, contrasted and framed by the majesty and grandeur of this Natural Wonder.
