Genre: Documentary, Action, Adventure
Duration: 87 minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: TBD

Plot:
Three elite climbers struggle to find their way through obsession and loss as they attempt to climb Mount MERU, one of the most coveted prizes in the high stakes game of Himalayan big wall climbing.

At 21,000 feet, it is nearly seven thousand feet less than Everest, but while the more famous mountain attracts thousands of climbers every year, the pinnacle of Meru (aka The Shark’s Fin) had never been reached by human beings. It’s described as the anti-Everest, a non-tourist destination with no guides and no way stations...
