Peter Facinelli (Can't Hardly Wait) stars in the exciting tale based upon the best-selling autobiography by Erik Weihenmayer, a rock and ice climber who overcame insurmountable odds to become the first blind man to reach the top of Mount Everest. This breathtaking story follows Erik's journey from the time he was a three-year-old boy diagnosed with a rare eye disease through his childhood when his parents challenged him to live a normal life despite his limiting handicap. It's a story of dreams, determination and heroism, and one man's passion to do the impossible while inspiring his community and an entire generation of vision-impaired athletes. The film also stars Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice), Kate Greenhouse, and Sarah Manninen.
