'Beyond the Heights' is the true, real-life story of Samina Baig, a young Pakistani girl who created history on May 19, 2013, when at the still tender age of 21 years, she became the first Pakistani woman to successfully ascent the highest peak on the Planet, Mt. Everest. Her achievement, remarkable as it is, assumes an even more superlative dimension, when seen in the light of her background and the challenges she faced, no less Gargantuan than those Everest itself presented. The documentary 'Beyond the Heights' captures Samina’s life and journey to the top of Everest in a spectacular, heartwarming way.

As the climbing season only lasts from May through to August, porters must make enough money in these months to support themselves through the rest of the year. 'It's difficult to make ends meet... there is no other source of income', complains one: of his seven children, he can only afford to send two of them to school.
