A group of friends work down in Kananaskis and stumble upon an old mystery of the Rockies. Hooker & Brown – two mythical mountains soaring above 17,000 feet, discovered during the fur trade, then lost.
When the railway went through at the end of the 1800s the British and American climbers swarmed this new land of unclimbed peaks and saw them on the blank edge of the maps and raced to climb them, in the process discovering all the major wonders of the Rockies.
But the mountains didn't exist. Our friends, perhaps the first generation in human history that have no white spaces on their maps, quest after Hooker & Brown, not necessarily for the mountains themselves, but what they inspired. As they tell each other the stories of the early explorers and follow their trails north, they find even modern charts are just interpretations.
They're compelled to see for themselves, yet they don't want to lose the power of inspiration that's drawing them forward. This they need to reconcile: how to solve the mystery without losing it's attraction, and they need to do it before they reach the pass.
