Factual Series

I Shouldn’t Be Alive

Heart stopping journeys past the edge of human endurance. Ordinary people thrown into epic struggles for survival tell their own stories, while dramatic recreations bring these incredible experiences to life.

Every film has an extraordinary physical ordeal at its heart, but there’s always an equally powerful emotional journey. What would you do if you suddenly had to accept that you were about to die alone? Would you lose your mind or would you fight to your last breath to defeat unimaginable odds? Moment by moment, survivors relive the moral dilemmas, chance events and desperate decisions that ultimately brought them home.
