Synopsis – The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest
George Mallory was obsessed with becoming the first person to conquer the untouched Mount Everest. He was last seen 800 feet below the summit in 1924, before the clouds rolled in and he disappeared into legend. His death stunned the world.

Seventy-five years later, climber Conrad Anker's life became intertwined with Mallory's after Anker found Mallory's frozen body with all his belongings intact. The only thing missing was a photograph of his wife, Ruth, which Mallory had promised to place on the summit. Haunted by Mallory's story, Anker returns to Everest with British climbing prodigy Leo Houlding to unravel the mysteries surrounding Mallory's disappearance.
