In 1989, Jerzy Kukuczka died during the Lhotse expedition. It was the first time he went to the Himalayas with money, equipment, and as a really famous person. The documentary shows a person who climbs up, higher and higher – literally, but also metaphorically and symbolically. From a bootblack to a millionaire, from a socialist worker to an international media star.
