A high-adrenaline tale of young climber Peter Garrett, who must launch a treacherous and extraordinary rescue effort up K2, the world's second highest peak. Confronting both his own limitations and the awesome power of nature's uncontrollable elements, Peter risks his life to save his sister, Annie, and her summit team in a race against time. The team is trapped in an icy grave at 26,000 feet - a death zone above the vertical limit of endurance where the human body cannot survive for long. Every second counts as Peter enlists the help of a crew of fellow climbers, including eccentric, reclusive mountain man Montgomery Wick, to ascend the chilling might of the world's most feared peak to save her.

As the helicopter is dropping off the rescue team at the high altitude ice & rock ledge on K2, the low air pressure causes the chopper to make very violent and unsteady movements. As Monique is standing on the ledge after jumping off, the aircraft pitches forward and the overhead chopper blades start moving dangerously close to her, and she lays down watching the blades coming closer and closer to her in a straight and steady path. She then crawls back against the rock wall and the blades again come ever closer and rip her jacket, which causes her to scream, but the blades always stay in a very straight and steady path over at least a 10 second period. All the other shots of the chopper show the aircraft pitching forward and backward and from side to side in a very violent manner during the entire sequence, so the blades would never remain that straight and steady.
