Overview

Over ten years after risking life and limb in one of the most treacherous rescue missions ever recorded, world-renowned climber and filmmaker David Breashears returns to Mt. Everest to tell the tale of what really happened on that fateful day of May 10, 1996. As darkness fell over Mt. Everest and a fast moving storm bore down on the mountain peaks, no one could have foreseen the tragic events that were about to unfold. Exhausted from their grueling ascent and still far from the safety of High Camp, three climbing teams were suddenly plunged into darkness as a fierce blizzard brought the elements bearing down on them in a blinding fury of icy death. In this documentary, the climbers and Sherpas who survived that massive storm recall their harrowing ordeal in candid detail, offering new insight on what would soon come to be known as the worst climbing tragedy in the history of Mt. Everest.
