Synopsis: Six “geniuses” attempt to summit Mount Everest.

Every year 1000’s of people violate the fragile environment of Mt. Everest. Ego and greed is turning this sacred mountain into a dumping ground of death and fecal matter.

Under the guise of a documentary TV show we interview six inept human beings who decide to scale the mountain.  It’s a comical examination of privileged idiots with strange motivations for this treacherous task.
