The Porter

A young privileged American attempts to make history at Everest by becoming one of the first ever foreign-born Porters to aid a Mt. Everest expedition. But in doing so, experiences a world far above his head. This is an inside look at the darker side of Everest. At the strength, pride and pain of those who support it. And at just how hard it is for a naive foreigner to attempt the same. This is the Porter.
