11 wounded warriors, climbing home from war
High Ground is about eleven wounded U.S veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, each dealing with different issues and looking to move on with their lives. They join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. Led by blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Mt. Everest summiteers as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top and heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history.
