Synopsis: Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalayas, BLINDSIGHT follows the gripping true-life adventure of six blind Tibetan teenagers on a climbing expedition up formidable Mount Everest.

Believed to be possessed by demons because of their blindness, the children are feared by their parents, scorned by their villages and rejected by society. Rescued by a blind educator and adventuress, the students invite a famous blind mountain climber to visit their school and let him lead them higher than they have ever been before. The result is nothing anyone could have predicted.
