Reaching the top is only half the battle.

Zhang Hong is an eternal hustler who comes from a poor family in China and lost his sight when he was only 21 years old. While his wife aspires to a peaceful life, Hong keeps trying to be successful in order to prove himself and to bring a better life for his family. Now as he works as a blind masseur in Tibet, a typical job for a disabled person in China, the 45-year-old family man ventures out for something not so ordinary: climbing Mount Everest. After preparing for this expedition for the past five years, he hopes to finally turn his luck around.
