Director: TOM WALLER
When a soccer team of 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach is trapped deep inside a cave in Northern Thailand, thousands of volunteers and soldiers from around the world unite in a race against time to find them. Once the boys are found alive ten days later, the only way out is an impossible five-hour dive-swim that only expert cave divers could survive. In Ireland, airplane engineer and hobbyist cave diver Jim Warny gets the call: “How soon can you be here?” Having said goodbye to his family, Jim steps off the plane and into the cave – a knife-edge three-day mission is underway.
Tom Waller born in 1974 in Bangkok, Thailand. He founded the production company De Warrenne Pictures Ltd. and secured funding to begin production on the film «Monk Dawson» (1998), his directorial debut, a story based on an award-winning novel by Piers Paul Read. He went on to produce the films «Butterfly Man» (2002), «Ghost of Mae Nak» (2005), «The Elephant King» (2006) and «Soi Cowboy» (2008) which was selected in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival. His second directorial feature was «Mindfulness and Murder» (2010), a Thai language murder mystery based on the novel of the same name by Nick Wilgus.
