A lyrical story, based on true events, of two best friends who decide to climb Mount Everest on a childhood dare. After making plans, growing up, going to university, saving, and training, they travel to Nepal where they meet their climbing teammates at the famed Yak and Yeti hotel in Kathmandu. Flying into the world’s most dangerous airport in Lukla, they embark on a two-month expedition to attempt a summit of the 29,035-foot “Mother Mountain” while trying to conquer their own deepest fears. Max and Molly discover the bonds that are formed with teammates and Sherpas through the laughter and the tears amidst the ever-present danger and risks. Climb with Max and Molly and their Sherpas in their do-or-not-die journey from Kathmandu to the Khumbu Icefall, from Base Camp to the Western Cwm, and finally to the South Col for their ultimate summit.

When they saw Her smiling face

Through the clouds that broke free,

They knew to say grace,

And be who they could be.

Sneak Peek of The Mother Mountain

From an early age,

They loved the outdoors.

Grand mountains would gain their gaze; 

By the fire, they smoked their s’mores.

The Icefall it rose

And tumbled and fell,

As if in a pose,

That looked all pell-mell.

Max and Molly attempted one last meal,

And then they strapped their oxygen tanks on.

With a long hard hug to seal the deal,

They left before their confidence was gone.
