“When 12 young soccer players and their coach were trapped by monsoon floods inside a cave in Thailand, the world watched for 16 days as reporters gave updates from outside the rescue zone. Now we gain a perspective that no journalist could capture, through the eyes of Thai and international rescue divers and never-before-seen footage. Even if you think you know this story, The Rescue is full of new revelations and delivers a dose of inspiration like an adrenaline shot.” (DOCNYC

The filmmakers make use of “a wealth of never-before-seen material and exclusive interviews to piece together the high stakes mission, highlighting the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs and U.S. Air Force Special Tactics and details the expert cave divers' audacious venture to dive the boys to safety.” (National Geographic)

Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film is a top contender for Best Documentary Feature Academy Award.
