ummer of 1986, several dozen alpinists from all over the world met to climb K2, second highest mountain on the planet.  Very soon the season transforms into a series of tragic events called “black summer”, leaving 13 climbers dead. Almost 30 years later an international group of grown-up children of acclaimed climbers sets out on an expedition to reach K2 base camp, symbolic burial place for those who lost their lives on the mountain. Hania Piotrowska, Łukasz Wolf, Lindsey and Chris Tullis challenged themselves to face the past and to understand the force that once seduced their parents and eventually killed them. The film is an emotional journey set against breathtaking vistas of Karakorum Mountains, but also a multilayered psychological portrait of people who are coping to understand the choices of their parents or their own passion.
