Summary This week it is the turn of Aron Ralston, arguably the most famous survivor in the world, to take his chances alone in the wild. His ordeal in a Utah canyon, where he had to cut off his own arm after getting trapped, was made into the Oscar-nominated film '127 Hours'. Now, he's spending another 127 hours as a castaway on a desert island, using the parallel timeline to relive his previous ordeal. The two stories merge, as he starts to suffer debilitating dehydration, and remembers how in the canyon he had to drink his own urine. In an emotional fireside climax on his fifth night, he remembers how the vision of his yet unborn son gave him the strength to amputate his arm, and how then, as now, thoughts of his family sustained him through bleak moments.PRODUCTION DETAILS:A Tigress Production for Discovery Channel UK
