When 12 Thai school boys got trapped in a flooded cave in 2018, the world watched on with baited breath: an outing to explore a nearby system of caves after football practice transformed into a two-week saga of survival and a ground-breaking, dramatic rescue.

Academy Award-winning directors E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (Free Solo) use never-before-seen footage from the rescue and intimate, first-person testimony to reveal the perilous world of cave diving, the bravery of the rescuers, and the dedication of an entire community that made great sacrifices to save these young boys.

This is a story of imagination, determination and unprecedented teamwork coming together in an edge-of-your-seat mission with life-or-death stakes.
