Long concerned over safety issues at the mine, Pat Bogan (Mimi Rogers) finds that her worries are confirmed when a cave-in occurs, trapping seven workers. Among those entombed are Pat's own husband Chief (Ted Shackelford) and their son Rabbit (Ben Castles). With the oxygen supply running out -- and water surging into the mine's tunnel -- Pat feverishly oversees the rescue efforts, battling every inch of the way with the "instinct over technology" policies of the mine's former superintendent, her own father Cappy (Bruce Allpress). A US/NZ co-production inspired by the real-life rescue of several miners from a collapsed tunnel in North Carolina; although it was filmed in the Auckland area, with the movie setting being West Virginia.
