On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers (Jason Clarke and Jake Gyllenhaal) from two expeditions, including doctor Beck Weathers (Josh Brolin) start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds, things become even more complicated when the expedition members become separated from each other, leaving some like Beck Weathers being forced to struggle back to civilization alone enduring overexposure along the way without any guides.
