When a soccer team of 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach are trapped deep inside a cave in Northern Thailand, thousands of volunteers and soldiers from around the world unite in a race against time to find them. In Okinawa, a phone call from U.S. Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii alerts the U.S. Air Force Major (JAMES EDWARD HOLLEY) to deploy his team. Meanwhile in Beijing, TAN XIAOLONG, an experienced diving instructor, is called upon by a charitable foundation to join a group of rescue volunteers traveling to the cave. British civilian cave rescue divers are also summoned to the scene by Thai officials. But once the boys are found alive after 9 days of searching, the only way out is an impossible five-hour dive-swim that only the expert cave divers could survive. The world watches as retired Thai Navy Seal SAMAN KUNAN swims in… and drowns. The cave has shown its teeth, there was no telling who would come out alive. In Ireland, airplane factory engineer and recreational cave diver JIM WARNY gets the call: “How soon can you be here?” Having said goodbye to his family, Jim steps off the plane and into the cave – a knife-edge three-day mission is underway. Based on true events, THE CAVE tells the thrilling story of the largest international rescue mission of modern times, from the unique perspective of men and women facing life-and-death decisions and displaying selfless determination and sacrifice, culminating in a triumphant outcome against all the odds.
