A charismatic Mexican alpinist with no experience in the Himalaya attempts to climb his first eight-thousander mountain (almost 27,000 ft high) with no supplemental oxygen and in less than 24 hours. Along his journey, he questions his principles, confronts self doubt and learns the value of friendship and family. This short film is based on his own personal recordings that he left behind.
