A group of unlikely, tech-savvy activists orchestrates a high-stakes heist on Mount Everest to steal China's global spotlight ahead of the 2008 Olympic Games, refocusing the world's attention on occupied Tibet. Pulling off the near-impossible and inspiring a generation of activists, this film reveals a rare, behind-the-scenes, glimpse into a historic moment in Tibet's ongoing struggle for freedom.
