Based on the short story by James Aldridge. Excellent, but elderly pilot Ben agrees to do dangerous underwater shooting for television. Together with his 12-yo son Davy, he flies a light sports plane to Shark Bay. A long time Davy is sitting on the beach. Finally, from the ocean a bloodied Ben appears. The boy hardly can drag his father back to the plane. Ben had only once shown him how to fly a plane. He also had explained that it was the last inch above the ground that mattered if the plane was going to crash while landing or not. —firstname.lastname@example.org
Very unusual story
Most unusual story line: veteran pilot decides to make some extra-money by filming underwater shark feeding at the remote Red Sea location. He takes with him young son ( about 12-14) for a plane ride, while goes underwater. The trouble is: while filming, he has been viciously attacked by a pack of angry sharks which render him incapacitated to fly home. Now he faces an option: either both of them die in the desert or his little boy must fly them back. His son has some rudimentary knowledge of flying, but does not have any real experience. The father lost a lot of blood and he is in constant pain. He is drifting in and out of consciousness, hence additional danger may be that his son will be all along in the air. Keeps the viewer on the edge of the seat. The musical score is well chosen as well. Shame that this movie was shown only for the Russian Audience!
