A chronicle of the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the whole world in 2018: the daring rescue of 12 boys-soccer players and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand. American and Thai commandos were drawn into it, but only the appearance of cave diving specialists from Great Britain gave a chance to save the trapped individuals. The directors, Academy Award winners for "Free Solo", found their way to never-before-revealed footage. Some of the situations have been recreated by professional divers.
