    A nice movie with good actors and an interesting story about life, love, and friendship. I really recommend seeing it.

    A man running away from his own life, befriends three people on a plane and learns about their lives. When the three others die from the plane crash, he finds their survivors and touches their lives in some way until he meets one who touches his life. Bette Davis' role is brief, but as always, intoxicating.
