NYC PREMIERE Just 17 at the time, George Lamson was the only survivor of the 1985 Galaxy Airlines crash that claimed the lives of the 73 other passengers on board, including his father. More than two decades later, he still wrestles with the experience, turning to the only people who can relate: the handful of other sole survivors of major commercial plane crashes. Speaking publicly for the first time since their accidents, four of them share their complex reactions to their miraculous survival.
“Dickens creates a penetrating analysis of trauma, guilt, fate, resilience and, ultimately, kinship among survivors.” – TIME Magazine/Lightbox
