When the 33 Chilean Miners emerged from underground before a worldwide audience of over a billion, they made a pact not to speak about what had happened underground. Now six of them remember the untold story of the first seventeen daysâ€”when no one outside knew if they were alive. Filmed down a Chilean mine with fellow miners, "17 Days Buried Alive" explores the nightmare of living in the dark tunnels half a mile underground, eating a spoonful of tuna every two days, and not knowing if you would ever be found.
