The film chronicles Pasang Lhamu Sherpa’s tragic and inspiring journey to become the first Nepali woman to summit Everest in 1993. As an uneducated, indigenous woman and a Buddhist in a Hindu kingdom, Pasang’s dream to scale the legendary mountain pits her against family, foreign climbers, her own government, and nature itself. PASANG: THE SHADOW OF EVEREST documents her historic quest that would transfix her country and uplift a new generation’s belief in its possibilities.
