Against the Sun

Synopsis: In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation - and each other - as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety.

You'll get a gander in the morning,

Chief. I'm sure I'll be here.

Pastula, is that Italian?

- Polish, Chief.

- Polish.

I've made a couple of hops

with you before.

Oh, yeah? I don't remember.

We'll be picked up come morning,

you reckon, Chief?

That's what I'm hoping.

- Hoping?

- We got procedures for this.

Come early morning,

they'll be on us like an old hound dog.

It was so damn hot inside that plane.

It's freezing down here.

Cock-a-doodle-doo, boys.

Well, we made it.

I was worried she wouldn't keep us

afloat, but she's still ship-shape.

Thank God.

Gene Aldrich, now I know you.

I couldn't put a face in the name.

In all my glory, Chief.

All right, who's up

for a fresh cup of coffee?

Hen-Ry! I'm gonna put on the pot.

All right, yeah.

- Thanks, Henry.

- Henry? Why Henry?

Oh, it's that show, you know,

off the radio?

Hen-Ry! Henry Aldrich!

No, I never heard of it.

Chief, when you said you were gonna land

in the drink, I thought, boy, this is it.

- Thought I couldn't land her?

- Wasn't that some flying?

I mean, he just laid her right down.

Yeah, he sure did.

You know, Aldrich, I've been wondering,

I don't understand

how you couldn't raise that carrier.

We couldn't have been more

than 20 miles out at one point.

Even at 40,

should have caught something, right?

You tell me, Chief. How far out were we?

We should keep our eyes peeled, right?

That's right. Everybody take a point.

We need to cover 360.

Good visibility.

Yeah, they'll check

every square mile out here.

It'll take a while,

but they'll do it, won't they?

Right, even if it takes all day

or into tomorrow.

Yep. Could take most of a day.

They'll do a box out to 50.

Well, even 100. They got the vis.

Divide that by the number of planes,

heck, it's likely to be this morning.
