For four years Brian Keenan and John McCarthy were incarcerated in a Lebanese dungeon. To displace the ugly confines of their existence, they imagined walking in the High Andes and across the wastes of Patagonia. Five years after their release, they undertook the journey together to see how the reality of Chile matched their imaginations and to revisit their past experiences. "Between Extremes" is the moving and amusing story of that journey.
