One of the most painful things about life is growing apart from people we are close to and then losing all connection. When the opportunity to grab a hold of something emerges, it should be taken even if the possibility of death stands in the way.
This is the situation that Natsuki (Junko Abe) finds herself in as she travels from Japan to Nepal in search of her brother Kenji (Kenji Kohashi). The last time she saw him was ten year’s ago when he left Japan to climb mountains. Two year’s ago he went missing during an aborted attempt to scale Mt. Everest. After Natsuki receives an anonymous postcard with a picture of Everest printed on the back, she is prompted to begin her own ascent in an effort to find some trace of him.
