A fateful exchange on a flight has consequences for Daniel Murphy. He's left in charge of a corpse of someone he never knew. He is persuaded to take on the challenge of getting a coffin from his family home in Clonakilty to Rathlin Island.
When a youth football team of 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach is trapped deep inside a cave in Northern Thailand, thousands of volunteers and soldiers from around the world unite in a race against time to find them. Once the boys are found alive ten days later, the only way out is an impossible five-hour dive-swim that only expert cave divers could survive. In Ireland, airplane factory electrician and recreational cave diver Jim Warny gets the call: "How soon can you be here?" Arriving in Thailand, Jim steps off the plane and into the cave - a knife-edge three-day mission is underway. Based on true events, THE CAVE tells the thrilling story of the largest international rescue mission of modern times, from the unique perspective of the men and women facing life-and-death decisions and displaying selfless determination and sacrifice, culminating in a triumphant outcome against all the odds.
Filmed at the real Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai province, Northern Thailand. Some of the real cave divers and rescue volunteers from the actual rescue mission were involved in the making of the film. See more »

This film needed rescuing
Saw this at Bangkok Screening Room, February 2020.
It was really not so good. Uneven pacing, poor cinematography (especially in the cave), zero character development resulting in no emotional investment from the viewer. The boys and the coach are one-dimensional stick figures with practically no dialogue.
The cast was a mix of professional actors and actual people who were on the scene of the event playing themselves, which sounds all right in theory but resulted in some laughably bad acting. Real actors should have been used for the entire film.
The film was produced in a short time frame immediately after the events actually took place, which might explain some of the bad choices made during production and make them almost forgivable, and the set design and production looked realistic enough-I think it was filmed on-site-so I give the film 3 stars for effort.
But don't waste your time. Just watch some clips of the real thing from YouTube.
