Historical remaking of the tragedy that Doug Scott and Chris Bonington suffered after having attained the first ascent of the Ogre in Karakorum. In their descent, Doug slips and falls down many metres. When he recovers himself, he realizes that his ankles are both broken. Here starts 'the adventure': with no food, no medicines, in the middle of a storm, both climbers take shelter in an ice cave for two days. Finally they go out to reach the Base camp. During eight days, Scott finds oneself compelled to move forward on his knees and Chris gets a pneumonia.
