Plot summary

(5 votes)

A group of Uruguayan rugby players make an annual trip to Chile with friends and family. The pilots make a mistake and think that they have passed the Andes Mountains but they haven't. Rescue searches give up on them and they run out of food. They are then forced to eat the bodies of their friends that died. Finally, Nando and Roberto walk out of the Andes to seek rescue.

Factual error: Most of the time the boys have no visible breaths, even though they're in a freezing climate.

Question: What does Cannessa mean when he says "I had no premonition. So much for ESP,"?

Answer: ESP stands for Extra Sensory Perception, the ability to see into the future or predict it in the form of a premonition. He means that whatever happened, he literally didn't see it coming.
