Silent documentary about the pre-war German Expeditions to Nanga Parbat. It was produced in 1951 mostly with footage of the 1937 and 1938 expeditions. The film shows the tasks of recovering the bodies of the death climbers of the 1937 expedition, who were buried by an avalanche. It also shows how a violent storm, which raged for over five days, left the team blocked in camp IV, with food and fuel in decidedly low quantities. They send an S.O.S., which is collected by the aviators in Srinagar, who manage to get food, parachuting them, to the unfortunates blocked by snow. The team, led by Paul Bauer, will still have to retire due to adverse weather conditions.
