Short version of the film '7000 mètres au dessus de la guerre': Afghanistan is today synonymous with conflict, terrorism and danger. Yet, before the war started, this country of Central Asia was famous for the beauty of its nature. As startling as it is, Mount Noshaq, the highest peak in Afghanistan rising at 7492 meters, has never been climbed by an Afghan citizen. In this documentary, four Afghan mountaineers attempt to do what none of their countrymen dreamt possible: to be the first Afghans to set foot on the top of Mount Noshaq. Their goal: to send a message of hope and peace to their war-torn country. This short version omits the first part of the original film, in which the team is trained in the Mont Blanc Massif.
