After watching the movie "Alive" one will be interested in this one. It has a lot of interviews with the real survivors, pictures of their hometown and Rugby in it. It tells us more about their life after the accident, and it shows the making of the movie on location in the Rocky Mountains. Very interesting if you want to know more about the story! Well worth buying.
