A woman named Liz Brantley who has 5 children is in training to become a professional airplane pilot. Her husband Dr. Bill Brantley is missing out on his children's activities and Liz is very concerned about him. Liz and Bill and the children move to Price, Utah for Bill's carrer. On June 23, 1981, Liz is set to do a three-legged solo flight across Utah to obtain her pilot's license. On her way back to Price, the plane has downshifts and engine problems and the plane crashes in the middle of a forest 15 minutes outside Grand Junction, Colorado. For 5 days, Liz's fate remains a mystery and has to survive with no water and little food. Bill feels that Liz is gone and almost gives up hope, but the children have faith that their mother is still alive. Written by
I am the grand-daughter of one of the search & rescue personnel who went to go look for Liz. My Grandfather & another ended up having their own plane crash on June 27th before Liz was found. They both died and this woman was very sweet in dedicating her book to them. We were very glad that she was found & that my Grandfathers death was not in vain. This all happened when I was 1 year old. So I was happy to see the movie when I was 22. I recommend watching this movie. I thought the actors did a very good job in portraying the characters emotions. Yes it is not a blockbuster with a huge budget but it does suck you in. When I came across it I could not tear myself away from the screen. I knew what the outcome was but had to see it for myself & my Grandfather.
