After a plane crash takes the lives of several people, survivor Gary Merrill takes it upon himself to meet with all the victims’ families and tell them of his last moments with their loved ones. An excellent ensemble cast, including Shelley Winters and a small role by Bette Davis (Merrill’s wife at the time), is the highlight, while the story is a bit too much of a soap opera to be really memorable.
