Brian Robeson was on his way to visit his dad for the summer when the pilot had a heart attack and passed away.
Brian crashes the plane into the lake and slept on the shore all night while being attached by hornets, flys and mosquito.
Brian made shelter under the ledge of a rock. He was hungry and knew to survive he had to find food. He went looking and found berries. Later he found snapping turtle eggs, made bow and arrow with his hatchet and was able to catch fish and fool birds.
One night a tornado came and destroyed everything Brian had. He faced many struggles in the forest put the hatchet his mother gave him helped him survive, by providing fire, shelter and weapons.
So Brian had managed to pull the safety pack out of the plane and used the transmitter to send a signal unknowingly. Then found some meal ready to eat (mre's) and started cooked one.
Soon after, Brian used the transmitter a pilot heard the signal and landed on the lake. Brian was making a meal when he saw the plane. the Pilot then he realized that Brian was the kid they stopped looking for over 2 months ago. Brian offered the pilot some food. Once Brian returned home he used the skills he learn in the forest.
