A powerful documentary about the life and untimely death of world renowned mountaineer Alex Lowe.

From the studio behind Oscar-winning film Free Solo.  Winner Grand Prize, Kendal Mountain Festival 2021; Best Feature Film, Banff Mountain Film Festival 2021.

World renowned mountaineer Alex Lowe was a towering figure in the world of mountain sports. In 1999, he was lost in a deadly avalanche along with cameraman David Bridges while attempting to ski the north face of Mount Shishapangma. Seventeen years later, their bodies were found by two climbers – leading Lowe’s family to travel to Tibet and recover them. In this powerful documentary, director Max Lowe (Alex’s eldest son) examines the feelings this unearthed for his entire family – including his stepfather Conrad Anker. Anker was Alex’s climbing partner and best friend who went on to marry his widow and help raise Max and his two brothers.
