Synopsis

Known for providing their wealthy clients with whatever footage it takes to sell a product--even if it means kayaking over a 110-foot waterfall or dangling by a harness from a helicopter--advertising executive Jeffrey, director Ian and cameraman Will agree to make a seemingly impossible commercial for a new digital video camera. Their mission: to show three expert skiers outrunning an avalanche. Heading for the Austrian Alps with beautiful downhill gold medalist Chloe, wild-child snowboarder Kittie and 19-year-old overall daredevil Silo, the film crew sets up in an unfinished resort perched 12,000 feet atop a mountain in the Austrian Karawanken Range on the border of Yugoslavia. But they are not alone. Serbian war criminal Pavle, who recently faked his death in a plane crash, is hiding out with his exotic girlfriend Yana, his son Slavko and a gang of terrorists determined to complete their horrible mission--even if it means murdering anyone who gets in the way.
