Until now, the real stories have not been told of Tenzing Norgay and the Sherpa people. Until now the credit for success on the mountains has not been given where the credit is due. Tenzing Norgay never climbed for fortune and fame as so many other people do today. He climbed for the same reasons that all Sherpa Climb. Because it is their way of life. It is their livelihood and their duty to their families. Everest belongs to the Sherpa. It is their mountain, their heritage and their way of life. This is the first feature documentary film to tell the real story of Tenzing Norgay. His history, childhood, family and his epic climb with Sir Edmund Hillary to the Summit of Mount Everest in 1953. This is his story and the story of the Sherpa and their relationship to the Mountain called Everest.
