In 1953, keen mountaineer Edmund Hilary, alongside experienced Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, made the monumental and historic ascent to the summit of Mount Everest; an event that stunned the world and defined a nation. This thrilling docudrama combines the use of archive footage from the actual climb alongside a dramatic re-creation of the assault, placing viewers in the midst of one of the most inhospitable environments on earth, and one of the 20th century’s greatest achievements.
