“No Place on Earth” brings to light the untold story of 38 Ukrainian Jews who survived World War II by living in a system of deep caves for 18 months, the longest-recorded uninterrupted underground survival in recorded history. Based on interviews with former cave inhabitants and the caving expert who uncovered the story, the docudrama is an extraordinary testament to resourcefulness, willpower and endurance against all odds.
While mapping out the largest cave system in Ukraine in the 1990s, explorer and investigator Chris Nicola discovered evidence that five Jewish families spent nearly a year and a half in the dank, pitch-black darkness of the Verteba Cave and Priest’s Grotto to escape the Nazis. Nicola joined with director Janet Tobias to film the incredible story of human survival.
