Nando: Between these mountains somewhere there's a green valley. See those mountains over there? There's no snow on them.

Roberto Canessa: Those mountains must be fifty miles away. You think you can walk fifty miles?

Nando: If we have to, we will.

Roberto Canessa: I can't.

Nando: Yes you can.

Roberto Canessa: I can't. I'm not as strong as you.

Nando: Do you know what it is that we've lived this long the way we have? Seventy days? It's impossible. It's impossible and we did it. I'm proud to be a man on a day like this. Alive. That I lived to see it, and see it in such a place. Take it in. I love you, man. It's beautiful. It's God. And it'll carry us over every stone, I swear.

Narrator: And so we were saved. Nando and Canessa breached the Andes and we were saved. Later a group went back and buried the bodies. They built a rough stone altar by the grave and on top of it, they placed an iron cross. There's nothing more I can tell you. We were brought together by a grand experience.

Antonio 'Tintín' Vizintín: [debating whether to eat the bodies] I think God would want us to survive. Strive to live.

Gustavo Zerbino: At all costs?

Antonio 'Tintín' Vizintín: No. I mean, we shouldn't murder innocents to live.

Gustavo Zerbino: And what about our innocence? What's gonna become of our innocence if we survive as cannibals?

Pilot Julio César Ferradas: [rolls his eyes] My... My gun. Gun!

[pause]

Roberto Canessa: No, my friend. We can't be a part of that.

Nando: [addressing the survivors] Okay, uh, I got something to tell you. Good news - they called off the search.

Nando: Because it means we're gonna get out of here on our own.

Narrator: After 20 years, you analyze a lot. You remember people, heroism. "The Miracle of the Andes", that's what they called it. Many people come up to me and say that had they been there, they surely would have died. But it makes no sense, because until you're in a... situation like that... you... you have no idea... how you'd behave. To be affronted by solitude without decadence or a... single material thing to prostitute it elevates you to a sprititual plane, where I felt the presence of God. Now, there's the God they taught about me about at school. And there is the God that's hidden by what surrounds us in this civilization. That's the God I met on the mountain.
