Amazing, little-known plane crash survivor story ...
2 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes interesting events are lost over time. I had no idea this plane crash story really happened until I came across this movie. It's pretty amazing that there's any story tell when a small plane crashes in the huge, unpopulated expanse of the Yukon (way up near Alaska). One would expect, esp. in 1963, that you just disappear and are never heard of again.

Well, the two very different individuals on this crash had an experience that we learn about in this movie. The people (strangers to each other) couldn't be more different: a brash, Jewish New York lady in her 20s and a quiet, highly devout Mormon / Mexican-American man in his 40s.

Their clash is immediate: the man pushes his religious beliefs on the lady ... and she is rebellious yet vulnerable. You wonder if and when this might go from bad to worst... What's great is that you get to see Sally Struthers and Ed Asner kind of in their prime and putting out great performances.

One thing to be prepared for is the playup on religion / god. It's kind of done in a 1970's mystical style which, by today's standards, might seem a little like there was a religious agenda.

While the movie mainly focuses on the interaction between the two wildly diverse characters over an amazing 49 day period ... it's only 75 minutes long and is worth the watch just to learn about this amazing story.
