When an undergraduate commits suicide, his best friend Tom Betancourt is sent down from university because he did nothing to prevent the death, which he felt was a choice his friend had a right to make.
A plane crashes just after takeoff and the only survivor, the pilot walks out of the wreckage. He doesn't remember the explosion or the crash, but 300 passengers & crew are dead. As the investigation goes on people are wanting answers.
For a relatively obscure film this film features powerful performances. There is no doubting the talent of Jack Wild but it is the supporting cast which carries the movie. And June Brown's performance as the single mother who becomes a martyr is galvanizing. Do you love your mother? If you can find this film I highly recommend you see it. An underrated gem by David Hemmings.
