Synopsis

When the San José copper and gold mine in Chile collapsed in 2010, 33 miners were trapped more than 200 storeys underground.

Temperatures in the mine reached 100 degrees Fahrenheit beneath a boulder twice the size of the Empire State building as they were trapped there for 69 days. The ordeal represented the longest underground survival in history.

Based on the book "Deep Down Dark" by Hector Tobar, which is based on true events.

  • 5 stars "Awesome Movie! Some of the facts are a bit off, but as always in "based on" movies that tends to happen. Very real life uplifting example of the human spirit and keeping hope alive! I hope that those miners get the portion of the film they deserve in the telling of their rebirth from the earth."
