Inspired by the incredible events surrounding a treacherous attempt to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain, "Everest" documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest of elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
In the slow build of Baltasar Kormákur’s disaster film, one scene shows journalist Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly), asking each of his fellow climbers why they would put themselves through very literal near-death experiences to reach the tip of the monstrous mountain.
