Veteran mountaineer and medical researcher Dr. Charles Houston brings us moving stories from early expeditions to the world's highest mountains. Featuring remarkable archival footage, this film documents the first ascent of Nanda Devi in 1936 (the highest mountain climbed at that time), the first visit by westerners to the south side of Everest in 1950, and two amazing trips to K2 including the tragic and heroic 1953 attempt. 'This is not a biography. It's not about me. It's the story of a group of friends, a story of mountaineering and altitude research in the golden age before commercialism.'- Dr. Charles
