Lost in the Pacific


Documents the harrowing true story of a band of World War II soldiers whose plane crashed in the middle of the Pacific, forcing them to rely on each other for weeks to survive without supplies in the face of sharks, extreme heat, dehydration and starvation.

World War II, October 21, 1942. A B-17 bomber drones high over the Pacific Ocean, sending a desperate SOS into the air. The crew is carrying America's greatest living war hero on a secret mission deep into the battle zone. But the plane is lost, burning through its final gallons of fuel.

At 1:30 p.m., there is only one choice left: an emergency landing at sea. If the crew survives the impact, they will be left stranded without food or water hundreds of miles from civilization.

Eight men. Three inflatable rafts. Sixty-eight million square miles of ocean. What will it take to make it back alive?
