Family men are a rare breed high on Everest - Can such a man keep his promise to his nine-year old daughter on the night he left home that he will return safely when attempting to reach the highest peak on the planet?
What drives a man to leave the wife and kids he loves to the extreme environments on the planet? On Everest it is not a question of if, but who and how many will die on the slopes each year. This is one man’s struggle to balance his love for adventure with the love he has for his family and determined to keep his promise. But on Everest there are many things that cannot be controlled.
