Winter climbing on the highest peaks in the Himalayas is an extremely hard challenge. Only half of all the 8000+ have been climbed in winter. After a 16-year-long break in first ascents a Polish-Italian team left for Shisha Pangma (8027m) in December 2004. On January 14th 2005 Piotr Morawski and Simone Moro reached the summit. The film shows how the climbers cope with severe conditions of a Himalayan winter expedition.
