In 1978, Arlene Blum led a team of American women on the first US expedition to Annapurna, one of the world's fourteen 8,000 meter peaks. This was the first time women had even attempted a mountain of that scale; triumph and tragedy ensued. The story is told through interviews, archival footage and Blum's photography.
