Storyline

A couple of student nurses decide to join some doctors to work in a medical station in the rain-forest a few hours flying-time from the Mexican town Catamaco. As they fly from Catamaco towards the clinic (which actually consists of just a few huts and almost none equipment) one of their three planes has to go down because of engine malfunction. It crashes somewhere in the jungle causing severe injuries to the passengers. The following day describes the attempts to save the lifes of the passengers (both nurses and doctors) in spite of the poor chances they seem to have. There is almost no medicine available, the supplies they brought with them were all on the plane going down and were stolen by native drug-dealers when they arived at the site of the crash first. In the afternoon they decide to take the injured to a nearby village with a runway long enough that the Learjet of the Californian Air Rescue team could take them to a clinic in the U.S. Not only is the journey there very ...

I've gotta vote 10, even without seeing the movie yet! I just finished nursing school, and guess who was one of my instructors? Yup: Jill Houston from the movie (that was her maiden name)! She's still an awesome nurse- I got to work one-on-one with her for 5 weeks and she taught me more than an entire year of classes could have! She told me her story and I had to do a search to find the movie since she's a bit modest. She told me about how all they really had was in packs around their waist- like bandage scissors, etc. I want to go into flight nursing but stuff like that has me a bit frightened, I guess that's something I'll have to get over.

Happy viewing!
