"A meditation on life, death and everything in between." - Newsweek

"A genuinely moving tale of super human perseverance and friendship." - Playlist

The ‘Shark’s Fin’ peak on Mount Meru in India is the most technically complicated and dangerous peak in the Himalayas – and one that has never been scaled to completion. The deadly route has seen more failed attempts by elite climbing teams over the past 30 years than any other ascent in the area, making it one of the world’s greatest extreme challenges.

After suffering a series of dramatic setbacks in their lives, three close friends and professional climbers confront their complicated pasts, inner demons and nature’s harshest elements in an attempt to conquer the Shark’s Fin.

Meru invites audiences to join these intrepid climbers on their treacherous journey, offering us a unique understanding of what keeps mankind striving to achieve the impossible, against all odds. This is a unique story of friendship, sacrifice, hope and obsession.
