Plot & Details

Inspired by the real-life rescue of several miners from a collapsed tunnel in North Carolina, this made-for-TV drama stars Mimi Rogers as Pat Bogen, superintendent of the Greymount Mine. Long concerned over safety issues at the mine, Pat finds that her worries are confirmed when a cave-in occurs, trapping seven workers. Among those entombed are Pat's own husband Chief (Ted Shackelford) and their son Rabbit (Ben Castles). With the oxygen supply running out -- and water surging into the mine's tunnel -- Pat feverishly oversees the Herculean rescue efforts, battling every inch of the way with the "instinct over technology" policies of the mine's former superintendent, her own father Cappy (Bruce Allpress). Cave In debuted May 2, 2003, on the PAX network.
