Academy Award–winning directors and producers E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin keep viewers on the edge of their seats with a wealth of never-before-seen material and exclusive interviews that piece together the high stakes mission, highlighting the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs and US Special Forces and detailing the expert cave divers' audacious venture to bring the boys to safety.
