In winter 2018, a team led by Krzysztof Wielicki, a Polish veteran Himalayas climber, challenges the K2. The climbing team hears the distress of French climber Elisabeth Revol and Polish mountain climber Tomasz Mackiewicz. The team immediately changes the route and plans to rescue them. This documentary originally attempted to capture the successful winter K2 climbing of the Polish mountain climbers. The camera follows the tension until the end and shows the struggles of those who have turned into rescue teams. The director gives weight to this documentary by choosing a serious and direct cinema style to fully highlight the efforts of the team led by Wielicki and the ghastliness of winter in the Himalayas. Full of breathtaking scenes and the authenticity of the Polish mountain climbers, this well-made documentary was awarded at many mountain film festivals such as Banff, Kendal, Bilbao in late 2019.
