Synopsis

Annie Garrett (Robin Tunney) is part of an expedition aiming for the summit of K2, the second highest peak in the world. The ascent seems to be going fine, but the team is failing to receive storm warnings and is thus ignorant of the danger awaiting it. Eventually an avalanche strikes, and Annie is left stranded, trapped in a crevasse with millionaire expedition leader Elliot Vaughn (Bill Paxton). Annie's brother Peter (Chris O'Donnell) then launches a rescue mission, gathering together a team of dedicated mountaineers - including Montgomery Wick (Scott Glenn), a climber whose wife was lost in Wick's previous expedition - as he races to save his sister from certain death.

Contains frequent scenes of moderate peril, some horror and one use of strong language.
