The Climb

When Samy professes his love to his long time crush Nadia, she jokingly dares him to climb Everest to prove his passion. True to his word, Samy leaves his home on the outskirts of Paris and embarks on a journey to scale the highest mountain on earth, with absolutely no prior experience. His departure sparks a growing wave of excitement throughout France, as everyone breathlessly follows his courageous journey, making the impossible, possible.
