No Place on Earth brings to light the untold story of thirty-eight Ukrainian Jews who survived World War II by living in caves for eighteen months, the longest-recorded sustained underground survival. Building upon interviews with former cave inhabitants, as well as with Chris Nicola, the caving enthusiast who unearthed the story, documentary filmmaker Janet Tobias filmed a present-day return visit to Verteba and Priest's Grotto caves in western Ukraine. Complete with dramatic reenactments, No Place on Earth is an extraordinary testament to ingenuity, willpower and endurance against all odds. Official Web Site
