Island in the Sky Movie Summary
Island in the Sky is based on one of the chapters in the 1944 novel Fate Is The Hunter which Ernest K. Gann wrote. The film follows the story of a pilot and crew of a World War II-era Douglass C-47 Skytrain. The pilot, Dooley, is a former airline pilot; pressed into service during the war to fly war supplies across the northern route to England.
During a return run, Dooley and his crew encounter formidable weather conditions that begin to ice their plane over. Dooley lands the plane in the uncharted wild lands near the Quebec-Labrador border due to low visibility and icy conditions.
Unfortunately, they are unsure where they have landed specifically, and cannot radio their specific location to would be rescuers. To make matters even worse, the arctic conditions that they find themselves in as well as their lack of food make the crew’s chances of survival on land almost as bad as their chances in the sky.read full summary
