This action-packed documentary follows the gripping journey of Mike Sarraille, a retired Navy SEAL, and his team of elite ex-military personnel as they embark on a perilous skydiving mission into the heart of the Himalayas. Directed by Dan Myrick of "The Blair Witch Project" fame, this documentary captures the intense preparations and the dramatic descent into Mt. Everest's challenging drop zones.


Battling sub-zero temperatures, unpredictable winds, and thin air, the team not only confronts the physical extremities of the Earth but also the emotional extremities of their past, paying homage to the soldiers lost in the tragic Extortion 17 incident in Afghanistan. With stunning visuals by Elia Saikaly, the film explores both the breathtaking beauty of the natural world and the poignant depths of human resilience and remembrance.
