K2 is the second-highest peak in the world but is renowned as the most dangerous and revered by mountaineers as their ultimate challenge. In August 2008, 18 climbers reached the summit of K2. Forty-eight hours later, 11 people were dead. What happened on that fateful day has never been fully resolved. Utilizing found footage, realistic reenactments, and interviews with survivors – including Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival’s 2013 featured speaker, Cecilie Skog, The Summit zigzags back and forth in time, interweaving multiple narrative threads and piecing together events that took place that day—one of the deadliest in mountain-climbinghistory.
