Title year:1991
Original dialogue(s):French
Running time:85 min 30 sec
Description:On October 21, 1939, a North-East Airways single-engine plane took off from the Saint-Hubert airport. On board were Joseph Bluteau, the pilot, and two passengers, George-Henry Hamilton, a rich businessman, and Richard Gagnon, one of his forest engineers. They were bound for Labrador, but the aircraft mysteriously disappears. On this same October 21, a few kilometres from the Labrador Sea, the plane crashes in the forest. The three men, lost and trapped, are nonetheless safe and sound. The long wait for rescue begins. Isolated and afraid of starving to death, the three stranded men organize their survival.
