A retired mountain climber attempts to rescue his sister from a crevasse in famously-dangerous K2.

ABSTRACT
K2, Himalayan mountain second only to Mount Everest in height, is widely considered the most dangerous mountain for climbers on Earth, with an estimated 25% fatality rate for attempted climbs per year. Vertical Limit follows Peter Garrett, wildlife photographer and retired mountain climber, as he attempts to save world-renowned climbing sister Annie from a crevasse in K2 following an expedition gone horribly wrong, battling long odds to prevent her from falling victim to a fate not unlike the one their father suffered in Monument Valley years earlier.
