Apparently the movie was good, but so authentically dark that most of the time I couldn't see anything, and a run time of two hours would have been enough. That's why I had spared the second part. EFi, webmiss

The story of a spectacular rescue operation is based on a true event: In June 2014, speleologist Johann Westhauser had an accident in Germany's longest and most difficult-to-access cave, twelve kilometers deep in the Untersberg mountain in the Bavarian/Austrian Alps. For almost two weeks, hundreds of climbers are working in a spectacular operation to save him. Over 700 rescue workers from five nations were ultimately involved.
