    In the autumn of 1939, Heinrich Harrer (Brad Pitt) and Peter Aufschnaiter (David Thewlis), set out to climb Nanga Parbat, one of the highest peaks in the Himalayas.

    The self-centred Harrer, whose sole preoccupation was the achievement of fame and glory, would experience an emotional awakening on his fantastic journey that would take him from the heights of conquest to the depths of internment in a British prisoner of war camp, then from escape and a harrowing two year trek through the Himalayas, to the mysterious Tibetan city of Lhasa.

    As a stranger in a strange land which few westerners have ever visited, Harrer befriends the young Dalai Lama, and is asked to tutor the religious leader in the ways of the Western world. Graced with the friendship and the spiritual enlightenment of the young Dalai Lama, a deep bond forms and the egotistical Harrer experiences selflessness for the first time. But this idylic world is about to be shattered by a force that cannot be ignored...
