1959 - a group of Russian hikers were going for a grade 3 certification on (the highest in the country during the period). A high-spirited team of ten members started on a hike for the Northern Urals of Russia...a vigorous trek that all of them have planned and prepared for. One hiker returns shortly due to health issues, a crisis it may have seemed at that time, but which will remarkably save his life. Few days pass and the nine have not returned. A search team is sent out. What they will discover is unimaginable...! Nine knowledgeable hikers walk out of their tent without hiking boots and coats into the brutal environment in the dead of winter. Their stroll down the slope would lead to anything but normal.
The 'mystery' intensi¿es as Russian investigators follow their tracks.
