Watch the official trailer for Michael Brown's High Ground, in high def from Apple:
Eleven veterans returning from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history. Representing nearly every branch of the military, the veterans and the Gold Star Mom who joins their trek bring humor and deep emotion to this hero's journey. This was photographed and directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Michael Brown, of past mountaineering docs like Mountains Without Barriers, 3 Peaks 3 Weeks and Human Hearts on Half Dome. In limited theaters starting on November 2nd. For more info, visit highgroundmovie.com.
