Sypnosis

A Katmandou, le reporter japonais Fukamachi croit reconnaître Habu Jôji, cet alpiniste que l’on pensait disparu depuis des années. Il semble tenir entre ses mains un appareil photo qui pourrait changer l’histoire de l’alpinisme. Et si George Mallory et Andrew Irvine étaient les premiers hommes à avoir atteint le sommet de l’Everest, le 8 juin 1924 ? Seul le petit Kodak Vest Pocket avec lequel ils devaient se photographier sur le toit du monde pourrait livrer la vérité. 70 ans plus tard, pour tenter de résoudre ce mystère, Fukamachi se lance sur les traces de Habu. Il découvre un monde de passionnés assoiffés de conquêtes impossibles et décide de l’accompagner jusqu’au voyage ultime vers le sommet des dieux (Source: Médiathèque Numérique)
