One Man, One Mission. Bill Burke had a goal after retirement to stay active and healthy. With a goal to try mountaineering at 60 years of age and keeping in mind that he had never climbed an alpine mountain in his life, Bill set a goal to climb the "Seven Summits," the highest peak on all seven of the world's continents. He succeeded and at age 67, summited Mt. Everest, becoming the oldest American to stand on top of the world at 29,035 feet and return alive. Because of an ongoing dispute about whether Australia is a continent, as opposed to Australasia, which includes a much larger land mass, Bill climbed the highest mountain in both Australia and Australasia, thus climbing eight summits on seven continents. Little did he know that he would enter into the record books and become the oldest climber in the World to scale all eight of the highest peaks after age 60, then becoming the oldest American to summit Mt. Everest and an inspiration to millions around the World. Eight Summits captures Bill's story and follows him along his journey into the record books. From his home town in California to Mt. McKinley and Mt. Everest, this compelling story follows Bill on his world record climb of Mt. Everest and his attempt to be the first to climb Mt. Everest from both the North (Tibet) and the South (Nepal) in one season, at the age of 70. With a stunning ending to the film, it will leave you realize that anything is possible, if you just work hard and believe in yourself. Cast includes: Alan Arnette, Apa Sherpa, Vern Tejas, David Leano, Pertumba Sherpa, Dawa Steven Sherpa and more!
