Several people from Copiapó, Chile, work in the San José mine. The owner ignores the warnings of the failing stability of the mine, which collapses a short time later. The only path inside the mine is completely blocked, and the thirty three miners manage to get to the rescue chamber. They discover that the radio is useless, the medical kit is empty, the ventilation shafts lacked the required ladders, and there was very little stored food. Mario Sepulveda becomes the leader of the miners, dividing the food in rations and stopping the outbursts of violence or despair. The mine does not attempt any rescue, and the relatives of the miners gather around the gates.
The government of Chile takes an active intervention, and orders the use of drills to reach the chamber. The first exploratory boreholes moved off-target, but a later one reached the required destination. The miners attached a note to announce their survival. They received new food, clothing and television communication with the surface, and a second bigger drill prepared a system to retrieve the miners one by one.
