The Mountain Between Us Storyline
Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing one another to endure and discovering strength they never knew possible.
When the pilot suffers a stroke, Alex [Kate Winslet] is behind the pilot on the left side of the plane and Ben [Idris Elba] is on the right side behind the co-pilot seat. They both face the rear of the plane and brace for impact as the plane crashes. When they wake up after the crash they have switched sides: Ben is on the left side and Alex is on the right.
