On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers (Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin) from two expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
Rob Hall (Jason Clarke) was the first non-Sherpa to climb Everest 5 times, his wife Jan (Keira Knightley) went on to be the second New Zealand woman to summit Everest. (Lydia Bradey was first). See more »
