Storyline:"Everest is undoubtedly the most dangerous place on earth," says veteran mountaineer Rob Hall (Jason Clarke) of his group of amateurs who have booked a tour to the summit at his company for $ 65,000. Still, they all want to embark on the adventure and climb to the highest mountain in the world, led by Hall and his team of colleagues and Sherpas. Clients include Texas-based physician Beck Weathers (Josh Brolin), postal worker Doug Hansen (John Hawkes), Japanese Fed ex-employee Yasuko Namba (Naoko Mori) and reporter Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly) wants to report on the expedition. After thorough preparation, the climb to the summit begins on May 10, 1996. In order to avoid congestion on the route, Hall's group teamed up with that of colleague Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal). But a blizzard puts the climbers in mortal danger.
