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.
