On Oct. 5, 1999, legendary climber Alex Lowe was tragically lost alongside cameraman and fellow climber David Bridges in a deadly avalanche on the slopes of the Tibetan mountain, Shishapangma. Miraculously surviving the avalanche was Alex’s best friend and climbing partner, renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker. After the tragedy, Anker and Alex’s widow, Jennifer, fell in love and married, and Anker stepped in to help raise Alex’s three sons.

A profoundly intimate look at the Lowe-Anker family, Torn reveals never-before-released archival footage of the ill-fated 1999 expedition, with early footage of Alex and Anker as young climbers. Sharing personal home videos and strikingly candid interviews with the Lowe-Ankers, the film follows Max in his quest to understand his iconic late father as he explores his family’s complex relationships in the wake of his father’s death.
