The Plane Crash
Neil, Hilary, Devon Lily, Cane, Jill and Colin
Devon, Hilary, Neil, Lily, Cane, Jill and Colin are all on a plane enroute to Chicago to look at some office space for Chancellor Industries. It’s a first class trip all the way and the couples intend to celebrate Valentine’s Day. All except Neil, who has revealed he can see by pouring himself a drink on board the plane and reading the label (12 year single malt scotch – 80 proof) of the bottle when Lily tries to stop her alcoholic father from mistakenly drinking alcohol in his “blindness”
Initially there is joy at Neil’s ability to see but it soon dissipates as neil describes the sight he saw when he regained his sight. His son in bed with his cheating wife. Neil takes adrink and tells them they will all pay for their parts. The good man he was is dead – thanks to Devon and Hilary.
Lily is horrified to learn that Cane knew about the affair. She is repulsed by Devon’s behavior and Colin for blackmailing Devon.
Colin wants to know what is in the briefcase. Their lives Neil states as turbulence rocks the plan.
Cane who is out of his seat is thrown onto the ground. Lily, Devon, Jill and Colin are jostled in their seats as the plane bounces around in a snow storm.
The plane crashes from 35,000 ft into a forest. It’s 35 degrees below zero. Cane calls desperately for his wife. When Lily promised Cane a special Valentine’s Day this likely wasn’t part of her plan. Meanwhile Neil and Devon find a female hand sticking out from pinned beneath the snow. Who is it? It is Hilary pinned beneath the plane door!

The survivors awaken cold at the plane crash site. Devon panicks when he can’t awaken Hilary, but she comes to. With the weather still being bad the survivors realize a rescue plane won’t be coming any time soon. Devon decided they need to help themselves. He’ is the logical choice to walk out. Can has children, he’s tronger than Colin and Neil only just got his eyesight back. Jill thinks he’s trying to do penenance for what he and Hilary have done. Wlaking out for help would be silly since they don’t even know where they are. But Colin has found a map.
