At the heart of this paradigm-shifting film is a Sherpa family who must decide if they will break a cultural taboo to lead an expedition up the most sacred of their mountains.

According to their religion it is forbidden to climb Khumbakarna, but to the international climbing community the mountain is deemed to have a summit more challenging than Everest’s. 

When asked by a Western expedition to lead their party, the family faces a dilemma driven by the need to earn money for the education of their son, who wishes to become a doctor. 

Director Eliza Kubarska follows the expedition, as the family negotiate the dangerous climb, uncertain conditions, and their devotion to their religion
