The quest for the summit is the goal for many though few actually make it. This is the story of some of those that had the passion and the drive to do so along with the successes and failures that came with it. Men and women with different backgrounds and different lifestyles... yet the same goal. To reach the summit of Everest, the tallest summit in the world. It's much harder than it may seem, this showcases their journey's from the idea to the final results. As with many expeditions before this, as will many after, some lives are lost along the way... Though there are these tragedies, there are many more that celebrate (whether they reach the summit or not). We are invited in to share their story of the adventure, from the heartache to the rejoicing and everything in between. Though this is slow at times, you'll be kept on the edge of your seat through most of this. Scenes that will take your breath away (in more ways than one), and others that will warm and break your heart. A heart stopping thriller that lives up to the expectations. There are some moments where you'll find yourself skeptical, and there are some errors in the events but this is truly cinematically brilliant and exquisitely told... this one isn't for the light hearted.
