On Friday, 25 April in 2003, Aron Ralston (James Franco) prepares for a day of canyoneering in Utah's Canyonlands National Park as he drives to the trailhead during night. The next morning he rides through the park on his mountain bike, aiming to cut 45 minutes off the guide book's estimate something needed for him to reach his mission. He is on foot, running along a bare rock formation when he sees two hikers, Kristi and Megan, seeming to be lost. Ralston finally convinces the two hikers that he is a trail guide and asks them if they want to see a much more interesting route..
