A triumphant true story from Danny Boyle, director of Slumdog Millionaire. The incredible true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a falling boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated slot canyon in Utah. With only a day's worth of water, a blunt penknife and an unwavering will to survive Aron does everything he can go make it out alive.
Hiking into the remote Utah canyonlands, Aron Ralston felt perfectly at home in the beauty of the natural world. The, at 2.41pm, eight miles into his truck, in a deep and narrow slot canyon, an eight-hundred pound boulder tumbled loose pinning Aron's right hand and wrist against the canyon wall. Through six days of hell, with scant water, food, or warm clothing, and the terrible knowledge that no one knew where he was, Aron eliminated his escape options one by one.
