Driven by empire, torn by love, George Mallory disappeared in 1924, a mere 800 feet from his goal of summiting Mount Everest. Now Conrad Anker returns to Everest to recreate Mallory's climb and solve a mystery that has spanned generations. Directed by Emmy® award winning filmmaker Anthony Geffen and featuring the vocal talents of Academy Award® nominees Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, as well as Hugh Dancy, Alan Rickman and the late Natasha Richardson, "The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest" is a breathtaking mountaineering adventure that seeks to provide answers to the enduring mysteries surrounding the death of George Mallory on Mount Everest. Foremost among them: Could Mallory have succeeded in reaching the summit before he and fellow climber Andrew “Sandy” Irvine disappeared in 1924?
