Extreme Adventure. Extreme Danger. Based on Jon Krakauer's phenomenal #1 best-seller, INTO THIN AIR: DEATH ON EVEREST, is a taut, gripping, true-life extreme adventure chronicling the suspenseful struggle for survival on top of the world's highest mountain. Scott Fischer (Peter Horton, Singles) and Rob Hall (Nat Parker, Beverly Hills Ninja) are experienced guides who lead two opposing expedition teams up the treacherous face of Mount Everest. Along for the climb are a desperate group of experienced and not-so-experienced thrill-seekers, including journalist Jon Krakauer (Christopher McDonald, Flubber). Although initially exhilarating, the climb becomes perilous and the two teams must band together. Reaching the summit is no longer their goal; they simply need to survive nature's awesome fury. INTO THIN AIR: DEATH ON EVEREST combines first-rate action, spectacular special effects and chilling thrills in the tradition of Cliffhanger.
