Check out the trailer for Walter Strafford's comedy "Kilimanjaro," premiering at SXSW on March 9 in the fest's Narrative Spotlight section. The film centers on Doug (Brian Geraghty, "The Hurt Locker"), who decides to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the wake of a bad breakup and his grandfather's declining health. Not-so-spoiler alert: Getting to the summit is more of an uphill battle than Doug bargained for.

Alexia Rasmussen ("Our Idiot Brother"), Abigail Spencer ("Oz the Great and Powerful," "Mad Men") and Chris Marquette ("The Girl Next Door") also star.

Here's the SXSW programming notes:

For years, Doug Collins has been wading through a routine unsatisfying job and an increasingly miserable relationship. After his girlfriend moves out, Doug pushes himself to live a more fulfilling life starting with a trek to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Life pushes back. In the face of challenges from every direction, Doug struggles to make his way to the mountaintop.
