Here’s a plot summary: “Inspired by Jeffrey Archer’s novel Paths of Glory, the story is set in 1921 and centers on the real-life George Mallory (McGregor) who is picked by Arthur Hinks (Strong) of the Royal Geographic Society to scale the previously unconquerable Mt Everest. Following World War I, the fading British empire is desperate for a victory, but for Mallory and his rival, the eccentric Aussie George Finch (Heughan), the challenge has nothing to do with patriotism, instead it is a singular test of self…Mallory’s real-life journey ended in mystery – he died during this third expedition to summit Everest, and it’s unknown whether he ever made it to the top.”

“We are thrilled to be working with HanWay Films in telling this important and timeless story. Bringing Everest to screen is more relevant now than ever. In this period of uncertainty, a story of true determination, passion and positivity can help remind us of what we can overcome,” said producer Jennifer Klein.
