Green recounts the tragic tale of September 30, 2006 when Chinese border guards near Cho Oyu opened fire on a group of Tibetans attempting to flee to Nepal via the Nanga La. Intertwined are the accounts of Tibetan refugees and Western mountaineers, primarily Luis Benitez, headed for the summit. A moving story of morality played out in the high Himalaya.
