The directors of the nerve-racking film FREE SOLO come up with a new film on extreme sports! This time, we're not climbing a kilometer up a mountain, but kilometers below the surface of the earth - into a diving cave, where 12 kids from a Thai football team and their coach have become trapped.

In 2018, the world was captivated by this story for three whole weeks: in a Thai cave complex, a football team had become trapped by an unexpected downpour. The rushed in army, the Navy Seals and the American Special Forces are completely distraught. Nobody appears to have the proper knowledge, skills and equipment to save the children and their coach from those miles of underwater, narrow caves in which the water can flow as fast as in rivers and it can be jet black and pitch dark due to the overkill of mud. But then, two gentle, introvert middle-aged British men come forward: Rick Stanton and John Volanthen have been practicing the bold and risky sport of cave diving. An unearthly hobby in which you're completely on your own in an environment that would give most people an instant panic attack. Rick and John face this insane mission with an improbably great deal of courage and perseverance.

Let yourself be blown away by the mental strength of the boys, their coach and the divers, the raw footage, beautiful animations and touching interviews.
