Film Story

April 2014 a Dutch expedition start to climb the Cho Oyu, the sixth mountain in the world. During earlier expeditions two Dutch died at this Himalaya-mountain.
Filmmaker and investigative journalist Geertjan Lassche closely follows the group on their way up to top. What drives these people? How ruthless do you need to be? And are these mountain climbers really as arrogant as they seem to be? The closer the group gets to the top, the more we see all kinds of universal dilemmas in and about mountaineering. And then, after six weeks, the mountain itself turns against the climbers.
