Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow-covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across the wilderness.
After their flight is canceled due to stormy weather, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Bass and photojournalist Alex Martin hire private pilot Walter to get them to Denver for connecting flights to Alex's wedding in New York and Ben's emergency surgery appointment in Baltimore. Walter, who has not filed a flight plan, suffers a fatal stroke mid-flight, and the plane crashes on a mountaintop in the High Uintas Wilderness. Ben, Alex, and Walter's dog survive the crash with various injuries..
Originally, only Kate Winslet's stunt double was going to plunge into the freezing water, as the studio was worried about Kate's safety. Kate, however, was adamant that she should do it, and demanded the director to allow her. "I'm the water and ice person! Water's my thing!", Kate recounted, referring to the extensive shoot of filming whilst submerged in water for months on end for Titanic. See more »
When the pilot suffers a stroke, Alex [Kate Winslet] is behind the pilot on the left side of the plane and Ben [Idris Elba] is on the right side behind the co-pilot seat. They both face the rear of the plane and brace for impact as the plane crashes. When they wake up after the crash they have switched sides: Ben is on the left side and Alex is on the right.

Okay. We're down to the rule of three. We can go three weeks without food, three days without water, and three minutes without air.

This was an entertaining film although a little on the slow side. Overall enjoyable ride which plateaued a little in the middle. The one massive issue I had was that when our two protagonists looked tired, cold and hungry, the dog seemed to be full of energy for the entire film.constantly bounding about like he was on a morning walk in the snow.....the little guys feet would have been so frost bitten and they should have at least made comments towards his condition as every time I saw him leaping through the snow it just ruined the tension. Ok for a Sunday night view.
