August 2010: the San Jose mine in Chile collapses trapping 33 men
half a mile underground for 69 days. Faced with the possibility of
starvation and even death, the miners make a pact: if they survive,
they will only share their story collectively, as 'the 33'. 1
billion people watch the international rescue mission. Somehow, all
33 men make it out alive, in one of the most daring and dramatic
rescue efforts even seen. Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist Héctor
Tobar is the man they choose to tell their story.
