As front man for The Alarm, Mike Peters has written some of the most rousing anthems of our day -- "68 Guns," "The Stand" and "Strength". But when diagnosed with cancer, his songs and life took on a new meaning, igniting his indomitable spirit. Channeling his music in the global fight against cancer, Mike has enlisted renowned musicians to trek and play fundraising concerts atop the most elevated spots on the planet -- Mt. Everest, Kilimanjaro and Fuji. With a contagious zeal for life, Mike -- a husband, dad, and rock star -- is saving lives one concert at a time, one hike at a time, one song at a time. This film is filmed over eight years and features one-of-a-kind performances from legendary rock musicians including Billy Bragg, Captain Sensible, Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses) and Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins). "The Man in the Camo Jacket" unfolds Mike's evolution from teenage punk rocker in a seaside town in North Wales, to the top of the charts, to the top of the world, to the harrowing depths of cancer treatments and his inspiring fight back.
