Sight On Everest, the movie

A visually impaired climber will try to summit Mt Everest from Tibet, a feat that never has been accomplished before. Thomas climbed the highest mountain on earth, trying to raise funds for a charity project, aimed to help the blind people of the Himalayas and to inspire people with a handicap.

From the riots in Kathmandu to the oxygen depleted air of the "Death Zone", during the deadliest season on Everest, the struggle of him and his team is captured until the dramatic ending, set against a backdrop of literally breathtaking scenery and culture.
