Synopsis

In the mid 1980s two British climbers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates tackled the treacherous Siula Grande mountain in the Peruvian Andes, South America. After reaching the summit without trouble, their descent hit a crisis as an injured Simpson relied on Yates to lower him down. When he is lowered accidentally over a steep crevice with no way back, Yates cuts the rope to save his life but to Simpson's certain death... miraculously he survives. The film is a combination of real-life documentary interviews with the two climbers and reenactment of the events on the mountain, focusing on Simpson's incredible journey back to base camp.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
