In August 2008, 18 climbers reached the top of K2, aka the “Savage Mountain,” located in a remote region of the Himalayas. Forty-eight hours later, 11 people were dead. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations. Why do athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? With breathtaking cinematography and jaw-dropping reenactments based on the testimony of those who survived the climb, this thrilling cliffhanger of a film explores the very nature of adventure in the modern world.
