In 1972, the Uruguayan rugby team is flying to Chile to play a game but their plane with 45 passengers crashes in the Andes Mountains. Stranded, the survivors find means to stay alive. Group leader Nando (Ethan Hawke) tries to keep everyone’s spirits up; medical student Roberto (Josh Hamilton) diligently treats cases of frostbite and gangrene; loose cannon Antonio (Vincent Spano) gradually loses his composure. Once food runs out, the group faces a terrible dilemma: eat flesh from the bodies of their comrades to survive, or die.
