In this intense ice-and-snow mountain drama, two climbers temporarily forced together for a rescue mission find themselves as uneasy partners in the adventure of a lifetime. Derrick Williams (Jason George) is a hotshot climber who wants to prove to the world he can do it himself. Teamed up with Christian "Safety-Man" Michael Harris (Ned Vaughn), another stunning professional world-class climber, they are given a fully funded ascent up one of the most deadly mountains in the world; the monstrous Mt. Chicanagua in the Chilean Andes. The battle doesn't begin on the slopes however, it is a test of wills, a question of faith and beliefs that begins immediately and doesn't stop until the stunning conclusion.Written by

You really are a gadget freak, man. Look at this - you got your GPS, your altimeter, your portable toothbrush set. What have you got in here anyway, man?

Oh, come on, man, Dex? You don't need this stuff.
It's just in case one of us runs outta juice up in the death zone.
Dex is for wimps, man. This is about man versus nature.
Oh, right, what was I thinking.?

Two mountain climbers partner in the rescue of tycoon Dabney Coleman's son off a high peak. Jason George and Ned Vaughn aren't just different racially they have serious different approaches to life. Vaughn is white and a Christian, George is black and a skeptic to say the least. George is also keeping company with a believer in Kylie Santiago and her father Clifton Davis really does not like his son-in-law.
One reviewer is right about one thing, this Christian film from the Billy Graham Evangelical Association spent quite a bit of dough on this, especially the mountain climbing scenes. Coleman's company which got a windfall of good publicity decides to sponsor both these guys on a climb of the legendary Mount Chiconcagua in the Chilean Andes.
I was actually quite impressed with the 21st century technology used for mountain climbing. That 3 dimensional holograph was really something.
It's a Christian film, it's also a tragic one and it follows the usual parameters. But it's a great film technically if nothing else.
