A group of disparate individuals, two of whom are Palestinian adolescents who have lost their legs in Israeli bomb strikes, are preparing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. They have nothing--and everything--in common. Hailing from Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, and America, the characters test the limits of their physical and emotional strengths to prove to themselves that they can transcend their strife-ridden histories and accomplish the unexpected.
Inspired by real-life events when Ibrahim Nasrallah succeeded in reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2014 with a group of volunteers and two Palestinian adolescents who had lost their legs, KILIMANJARO SPIRIT is a page-turning, nail-biting tale of adventure, as well as an ode to the resilience of the human spirit.
