When & Where
German mountaineer Thomas Weber, wishing to climb Everest in spite of his visual handicap, asked two cameramen to film this expedition. For them this is a dream come true. In the first weeks they are confronted with their own physical limitations. Surrounded by people who are prepared to die for their dream, giving up is not an option. During the expedition friendships are built. They are confronted with accidents and death. In the isolated environment the cameramen turn the camera on each other. This film is a personal story of the harsh and extreme conditions high up on the mountain.
