Wanda Rutkiewicz is considered to be one of the greatest female mountaineers of the twentieth century, if not the greatest of all time. She was one of the first women to attempt to climb all of the Eight Thousanders. On 16 October 1978, she reached the top of Mount Everest, making her the first European woman, and the third of all time, to set foot on the Roof of the World. She climbed eight of the world’s highest mountains between 1978 and 1992, including Cho Oyu and Annapurna in solo climbs. In 1986, she became the first woman to climb K2 without supplemental oxygen. Wanda died in May 1992 as she attempted to climb Kangchenjunga. Through original footage and interviews with people who knew her, this film retraces her great mountaineering career.
