It’s a dry day in Queensland, Australia, and Neil Parker is making his way up a waterfall. But suddenly, he loses his footing on the slippery rock and plunges 20 feet into the creek below. As he counts his injuries, panic begins to set in. His leg is snapped, dangling uselessly from his body, and he has no way to call for help. Will he ever make it back to his family again?

Ironically, this is far from the most challenging walk that Parker has undertaken. The three-hour stroll on Mount Nebo, in fact, should have been a breeze. But as the hours and days tick by, the unfortunate hiker begins to contemplate death. Meanwhile, a search party scans the wooded terrain for the missing man.
