Everest International Peace Climb. The team includes climbers from China, the Soviet Union and the United States, led by Jim Whittaker, the first American to have reached the summit of the mountain in 1963. The film captures the high altitude experience, where ideals of world peace and cooperation overcome frigid conditions, medical emergencies, language barriers and cultural differences.
