A plane crashes deep within the Himalayas. Its five surviving passengers are stranded and without hope, until a mysterious crowd materializes in the snow and whisks them away to a hidden utopia. Lavish sets and a mammoth scope spelled a production riddled with difficulties, foreshadowing the rigor behind the stunning recent digital restoration decades in the making.
