The movie itself is a documentary of a group of climbers who dare to complete a climbing expedition up K2. K2 is the second highest peak in the world and going on an expedition up K2 is a grave undertaking, which the climbers experience as they start their climb. The expedition starts out with a team of 24 climbers excited to be making this journey together, but because of various different obstacles while climbing K2, eleven of the original team are either killed or vanish while making the journey up. This documentary depicts true-life conditions in an expedition of this particular kind, and it is an exciting tale of what it's like to be a climber on an expedition like this.
