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.
