Julie woke up to go to the airport at 6 in the morning. She rummaged through her bag looking for her passport and her boarding pass but could not find it! She looked everywhere.
Julie, Olivia, Brett, and Dylan meet while waiting at the gate because of the delay. They all tell a little about themselves to one another. It just so happens that they are staying at the same hotel! And, they were all heading to western Australia.
They are on the plane and they hear the captains radio cut out. The lead flight attendent annouces for everyone to remain calm and put on their oxygen masks. Even though they were new friends, they were still worried about one another. Julie thought to herself, "I wish I would've stayed home!"
Bang! The plane crashes into the ocean. They all swim to a floating piece of the plane. They can't see Olivia so they head on without her before they lose another. They get onto it and start floating in the direction they think the plane was going while gathering the floating bottles of water and the bags of peanuts.
They end up on an island after spending a day out at sea. Brett and Dylan start finding materials to start a fire while Julie gathers leaves from the palm tree to send an S.O.S. signal. They spend three whole days on the island before even seeing a passing ship. They talk about all the bad feelings they had and all the stuff that went wrong the day they went to the airport.
