Product Description

Experience the unbelievable but true account of hope, friendship, and courage that captivated an entire nation in THE PENNSYLVANIA MINERS' STORY. Relive every gut-wrenching, heart-rending minute of the ordeal when a close-knit group of nine coal miners accidentally punch into an old mine shaft that's holding back millions of gallons of trapped groundwater. Now tragically trapped themselves in claustrophobic four-foot-high shafts, time becomes the real enemy. As their families gather above ground, the miners must battle rising water, hypothermia, "black damp," and the odds below -- armed only with the will to survive.

The Pennsylvania Miners' Story gives a realistic and heartfelt depiction of the true story of nine men trapped in coal mine. After breaking into a water-filled abandoned mine, the nine miners struggle to stay alive while rescue crews fight against time to drill down. There are no surprises to the story, but the harrowing circumstances of both the trapped men and their wives and children up above is made acutely, powerfully clear. What could be mawkish--for example, one shivering miner realizes he didn't kiss his wife goodbye that morning--is given compelling emotional weight by the movie's straightforward realism and solid performances by a largely unknown cast (the most famous face is probably John Ratzenberger, from the TV show Cheers). Only the hardest heart could remain unmoved. --Bret Fetzer
