Storyline

JOURNEY TO ROYAL follows filmmaker Chris Johnson as he sets out to connect with his late Great Uncle, Royal A. Stratton, a 22- year-old rescue pilot who flew with the 4th Emergency Rescue Squadron and died saving the lives of 9 airmen in the South Pacific during WWII. Encountering members of contemporary military along the way leads to a deeper understanding of the value of service, the struggles of losing brothers and sisters-in- arms and the challenges of re-integrating into the civilian sector and the American workforce. What does it mean to risk your life in the service of saving lives? Surviving members of the 4th Emergency Rescue Squadron recount the dangerous missions which carried them unarmed into the path of the enemy on 862 rescue missions saving the lives of 576 men. Royal's final courageous flight lifts off from first hand accounts and unfolds in an unflinching cinematic portrayal. Ultimately, Johnson travels to Iwo Jima, the last place his Great Uncle set foot on earth. ... Written by Johnson, Christopher (IV)
