SYNOPSIS

In the summer of 1986, several dozen alpinists from all over the world met to climb K2. Very soon the season transforms into a series of tragic events called 'black summer', leaving 13 climbers dead. Almost 30 years later, Eliza Kubarska, the director of the film, together with an international group of grown-up children of acclaimed climbers, who died on K2, undertake an expedition to answer the question: what is the price of passion? 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

The latest film by Eliza Kubarska, the winner of IAMF Grand Prize. While her 2021 film The Wall of Shadows conveys the feelings of Sherpa's parents, this is about the children left behind after the K2 accident in 1986, with a big question for the director.
