SYNOPSIS

The story of Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, the indigenous trailblazer who battled racism, gender discrimination, and political opposition in her quest to become the first Nepali woman to summit Mt. Everest. Her courageous, tragic journey would greatly move her country, inspiring new generations to reach for their rights. 

NOTE

[Dawa Futi Sherpa, Producer​]

This movie brings a lot of conversation that is still much needed in our society; on education, on women empowerment and giving voice to the marginalized society.
