THE CLIMB won “Best Feature Drama” at International Family Film Festival
Derrick Williams (JASON GEORGE, Sunset Beach) is a brash, young African-American alpinist out to make a name for himself in the world of extreme mountain climbing. Michael Harris (NED VAUGHN, Courage Under Fire, Apollo 13), a man of deep conviction, deep faith, and a dry sense of humor is also an excellent mountain climber. After rescuing the son of a wealthy corporate executive (DABNEY COLEMAN, Inspector Gadget, Tootsie, The Guardian) in a climbing accident, the ostensibly grateful father offers to sponsor Derrick and Michael in a climb up their dream mountain — but they must do it as a team. And there’s the rub. These two climbers — known primarily for their solo accomplishments, must learn to overcome their oil and water relationship if they are to succeed. And what both men don’t realize is that as they climb to the edge of the most extreme and treacherous terrain of their careers, they will be facing more than just the mountain — they will come face to face with their darkest fears, their deepest tragedies, and, ultimately, their greatest triumphs.
