In 1953, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary joined a team of explorers determined to reach its top.Alone at the top of the world with their oxygen running low, they faced off against the brutal elements and new dangers at every turn. And they were armed with little more than their courage, their determination and a belief in each other. But would that be enough to achieve the impossible, what no man had done before?
