Touch the Top of the World

2006 NR

Victim to a rare eye disease at age 3, Erik Weihenmayer refused to let his impaired vision stop him from leading not just a "normal" life but a heroic one, overcoming myriad obstacles to assay the world's tallest mountain. This film tells his story. Peter Facinelli stars as Weihenmayer in this Peter Winther-helmed presentation for A&E that follows the athlete-adventurer and his climbing buddies as they risk their lives in pursuit of a dream.
