Australian Mike Rheinberger was obsessed by a dream to climb Mount Everest. He had tried six times to reach the summit and had failed. On his seventh attempt, he took his friend, New Zealand cameraman Mark Whetu, with him to record what he hoped would be the attainment of his dream. The Fatal Game is a record of the triumph and tragedy of the pair’s ascent.
