Eleven veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history.
Representing nearly every branch of the military, the veterans, and the Gold Star Mom who joins their trek, bring humor and deep emotion to this hero’s journey all captured with breathtaking, vertigo-inducing cinematography by three-time Emmy® winner, director Michael Brown.
Soldiers' Angels volunteers will be on-hand for pre-screenings in Portland, San Diego, Austin, San Antonio, Arcadia (CA) and Las Vegas, but more Angels are needed! Can you join us in the theaters to encourage audiences to support America's heroic combat veterans who are the brothers and sisters of the 11 featured in this film, and who need our love and assistance as they reintegrate?
