The story that gripped the globe.
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 share their story only collectively, as 'the 33'.
One 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.
