Killer Slope

Filmmaker and investigative journalist Geertjan Lassche joins a Dutch expedition to climb Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. What drives these mountain climbers? How ruthless do you need to be? And are they really as arrogant as they seem to be? The closer the group gets to the top, the more we see the diverse dilemmas that beset mountaineers. And then, after six weeks, the mountain itself turns against them.
