Storyline

At the end of a late-summer trip in the Alaskan wilderness, four young backpackers find themselves stranded when their chartered airplane doesn't show up. Hundreds of miles away from civilization and with the weather closing in fast, the reality of their situation hits home and they realize they need to take action. Their problems escalate when a member of the group is badly injured, seriously jeopardizing the group's chances of survival. As the pressure of extreme weather and isolation begins to divide the group and they split up to find a way back to civilization, they must put aside their differences and band together to make it out alive in this tense and gripping drama filmed on location in Kodiak, Alaska.

Well done survival drama
30 April 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Four campers fly to an island off the coast of Alaska for a vacation in the unspoiled wilderness. At the end of their stay they wait for the plane to return to pick them up... and they wait... and they wait. Eventually they realise that nobody is coming and that it is up to them to get back to civilisation.

Well made film but really more of a drama than an action or adventure piece. Nicely acted by all concerned, pretty good photography and well directed by Mr. Jerry (who hasn't done anything else since, according to the IMDb, which is a shame).

If you'd prefer a more typical adventure film give Survival Quest (with Lance Henriksen) a spin. Very underrated film in my opinion.
