The film is based on real events that took place in the Himalayas in May 1996. Then, three commercial expedition, which included both experienced climbers and tourists who had no experience of the conquest of eight thousand, climbed the highest mountain in the world.
However, during the descent a few customers got in the strongest storm, which killed five people. Victims would be greater if it were not known climber Anatoly Boukreev, the guide of the “Mountain Madness” of Scott Fisher.
