AN UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF COURAGE, DETERMINATION, AND LOVE

A brother and sister are torn apart by tragedy, their lives devastated by a horrific climbing accident. He made a split-second decision that changed their lives forever.

He cannot forget.
She cannot forgive.

He ran away from his pain, hiding in the wilderness as a nature photographer. She froze him out of her life, chasing her father's dream -- to climb the world's highest peaks. Now she is traped in an icy grave at 26,000 feet -- above the vertical limit of endurance, a death zone where the human body cannot survive for long. He must climb K2, the world's most feared mountain, to save her.
