Historical documentary recounts the first human ascent of Mount Everest.

Mount Everest, Earth's tallest mountain, stood tall above all other peaks as a mammoth beast conquered by none until mountaineer Edmund Hillary successfully executed the first human ascent in 1953 with the help of masterful Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. Beyond the Edge recounts events surrounding that historic ascent, detailing its impact on a planet still very much burned by the carnage of World War II.
