Overview

In 2018, the world watched on with baited breath as a team of expert cave divers conducted one of the most challenging rescues ever attempted: saving twelve boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand. From the Oscar-winning filmmakers behind Free Solo comes The Rescue, an enthralling chronicle of this against-all-odds story. Piecing together never-before-seen material and extensive interviews, this acclaimed documentary goes through the mission step by step, detailing the rescuers’ heroic efforts at diving the boys back to safety.
