Brian Robeson was flying to his dad in Canada because his parents divorced. On the plane, he was thinking of the divorce and "The Secret". He was sitting in the co-pilot seat and the pilot let him try flying the plane for a second. The pilot had cramps and he was gassy. Then the pilot jerked back and had a heart attack. Brian thought of the heart attack he saw in the mall. Then Brian was alone in the plane
Brian was alone in the plane. He carefully took of the radio off of the pilot and tried to call. It didn't work so he cried. Then he let go of the button and there was another speaker at the other end. He tried to explain what was going on but they were cut off. He realized the engine will stop soon so he'll have to land in a lake. He spots a lake and the engine dies. He dives the nose down and vomits.
While Brian was diving down, he was very panicky. He thought he was going to die. All he saw was trees. Then he noticed a lake. He steered the plane into the lake. Then he crashed into some trees and collided into the lake. While he was underwater, he crawled through the water to the surface. After he got to the surface, he lost his consciousness.
While Brian was asleep, his dream was about Brian's mom with another guy. He wakes up while screaming, his legs were in the lake and he was in pain. When the sun came up, mosquitoes came and started biting and feeding on him. Brian tried to fight them off but it was no use. When the sun comes up the mosquitoes left him alone. He notices and listens to the nature around him. He even recognizes from TV. He sat under a tree and falls asleep.
Brian wakes up feeling incredibly thirsty but he doesn't really want to drink the lake water because the pilot is underwater. But he drank the water until he couldn't anymore and vomits. He sits under a tree and thought simple thoughts. He thought about his teacher who says always be positive. Brian emptied his pockets and went over what he had. some coins, a nail clipper, a twenty-dollar bill, and some scraps of paper and a hatchet. Brian realized he needed some food and shelter.
Brian finds a hollow on the rocky ledge and decides to build his shelter there. He realized that he was hungry. Brian decides to look for some berry bushes. So he went to the forest to look for some. He keeps the lake in sight so he won't get lost. He saw some birds eating berries. He ate some berries realizing it was tart and has large pits he keeps eating until he was full. He attempts to make fire by rubbing 2 sticks together but it failed. Mosquitoes came back, Brian protects himself with his windbreaker and falls asleep.
