A moving story from filmmaker Michael Brown. This spectacular film follows the doctors' work on the Himalayan Cataract Project all the way to the summit of a 21,000-foot Himalayan giant.

The North Face athlete team joins eye surgeons from Nepal and America in hopes of making a difference. At the heart the most formidable mountain range on earth lives a gracious people who suffer from the highest rates of cataract blindness on the planet. The team visited the Tilganga Eye Center in Kathmandu as well as a remote Cataract Surgery Camp in a rural part of Nepal where Dr. Geoff Tabin and Dr. Sanduk Ruit provided high level eye care to locals including sight restoring cataract surgeries in many cases. After the eye camps the the team traveled to the Khumbu area of Nepal to climb 21,000-ft Cholatse.
