    50 year-old Australian mountaineer Lincoln Hall attempted to climb Everest in 1984 but didn't reach the summit. Now, 22 years later, he has a second chance. Despite his age, Lincoln fulfils his lifelong dream, but on the descent is struck by a deadly form of altitude sickness known as a cerebral oedema. Unable to climb and suffering from hypothermia, Lincoln is left for dead at 28,000ft. His survival is nothing short of a miracle.
    In May 2006 climber Lincoln Hall summits Mt. Everest but on the way down he develops life threatening cerebral edema. Sherpas, themselves at risk in the low oxygen death zone, assist his descent but abandon him at 28,000 feet when he falls unconscious and is believed beyond help. During the night Lincoln, his death already announced, awakens and that morning is found by Dan Mazur and his group of climbers during their summit attempt.

    This anarchic comedy parodies the hard-core rock-jock mountaineering scene. Finally, a climbing film without any climbing or narrative, in this hysterical analysis of the modern climbing ethic. The onslaught of comedic sketches mirrors the achievements of our heroes. Features a battle scene, superheroes, villains, insane caricatures, short animations, and film parodies. Visually stunning, very funny and slightly risqué -- an experimental climbing comedy falling off the edge. (It is possible for the film to be edited into shorter sections or for sections to be shown individually, particularly the opening parody of Touching the Void.) ("Touching Myself").
