Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • During the flight back home from an away game, the team, coaching staff and others seem fine, despite a thunderstorm outside. Suddenly, there's a flash of light, a sudden violent jolt, and the screen then goes black (representing the fateful point of impact for the plane). We then see various people in the town getting word of the crash and then racing to the crash site in the woods at night. Firefighters are there at the burning wreckage, and we see several views of that, but none of any bodies. We later hear that 75 people perished in the crash.
  • We see a body bag being carried away from the crash site, and then a funeral scene where three closed caskets are at the service.
  • We hear (in the whatever happened to bit at the end of the film) that a player died in 2001 and was then buried with his former teammates from the crash.
  • During the end credits, we see footage and a still photograph from the real crash site aftermath.
  • the aftermath of the crash. Tombstones at a grave.
