In 2010, 33 Chilean miners were buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a century-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. Starring Antonio Banderas and Juliette Binoche, this tense, dramatic thriller depicts the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up.
