Aron Ralston performed his own self-rescue in one of America's most isolated locations - the subject of the film "127 Hours". However, when he did not show up for work, there was concern back home in Colorado - a "B-storyline" going on parallel to Aron's last 3 days of entrapment. This short documentary recounts these efforts, via interviews with his rescuers - Aron's mother, his friends, co-workers, police officers, park rangers, and Aron himself as to how a helicopter arrived in time to air lift him to a hospital and save his life. It concludes with a brief aftermath post-surgery with the media hoopla that surrounding him once his story got out, and an opportunity for Aron to say thank you, yet again to the people who contributed in giving him a second chance at life.
