K2 is one of only 14 mountains on Earth higher than 8,000m (26,247ft) tall, and it is the only one that has never been climbed in the winter. With extraordinary footage, this film tells the true story of the winter 2018 climbing attempt of K2. The expedition was led by mountaineering veterans and legends Krzysztof Wielicki, Adam Bielecki, and Denis Urubko. It was interrupted by threats of avalanches, rockfalls, and other extreme conditions—and it was marked by one of the most extraordinary, successful rescue operations performed in history of mountaineering.
