October 13th, 1972.

Air Force Flight 571, carrying a rugby squad from Montevideo, Uruguay, devastatingly crashes in the remote heart of the Andes.

Plunged into freezing isolation, survivors join forces and become each other’s best hope as they navigate the gruelling journey to find a way back home.

This breathtaking, bracingly unflinching story of perseverance in the face of the most impossible of odds is an emotionally stunning recounting of extraordinary history from master director J.A. Bayona.

Based on Pablo Vierci’s book of the same name, which recalls the miraculous testimonies of the tragedy’s survivors, this wondrous drama is the official Spanish entry for Best International Feature at the 2024 Academy Awards.
