Based on the true story of the 1982 Canadian climbing expedition to Mount Everest, this drama sees an eclectic and combative mix of Canadians tackle the world's tallest and most historic peak. Laurie Skreslet has recently lost his best friend in a Banff climbing accident and blames himself. As his Everest team treks through Nepal, the angry conflicts between the climb's leaders do little to comfort him. No sooner are they on the mountain than catastrophe strikes. Four team members meet tragic deaths, the media turns against the expedition, and sponsors cut off supplies. As half the climbers bow out and others prepare to leave, Laurie digs deep to find inspiration and lead a small group in one final attempt to conquer the summit.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”
