The peak of their professional careers comes when they become the 14th team to scale the Himalayas. But the climb came at a price: both sustained injuries and Hong-gil was compelled to retire. Years later, Hong-gil is a renowned lecturer and Mu-taek takes up an assignment to go up Everest. When Hong-gil learns that Mu-taek has gone missing, he blames himself for encouraging the younger man's plans. Looking at a photo of Mu-taek's frozen corpse still trapped on the mountain, he decides to put together a rescue team to retrieve the body. Despite warnings, concerns over his injured leg and treacherous storms, Hong-gil leads the expedition.Written by
This movie is above all a human drama, set with extraordinary shots and scene of courage and solidarity which in high mountain is absolutely necessary. I liked the movie very much, because there is humor at the beginning, then the dramatic story and finally the giant that is the Everest. Finally the exploit of all these mountaineers. The movie is very well done and this story is based on a true story that will make you love this beautiful movie. A movie to be discovered by the sumptuous images offered by Everest
