The Mountain Between Us…In January, after the retraction of their trip out of Boise Airport to Denver, because of stormy climate, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Bass (Idris Elba) and photojournalist Alex Martin (Kate Winslet) employ Walter (Beau Bridges), a neighborhood private pilot to inspire them to Salt Lake City, for corresponding flights to Alex’s wedding in New York (planned the next day) and Ben’s crisis medical procedure arrangement in Baltimore, Maryland. As they load up a little plane, alongside Walter’s puppy, Alex inquires as to whether he has recorded a flight plan, to which he says no, he doesn’t have to, as “… it’s still light out …”, they’re flying VFR, and they’ll beat the moving toward tempest. He discloses to them he flew battle missions in Vietnam, so except if someone is shooting at them, they’ll arrive. Minutes after departure, Walter brings up they’re over the High Uintas Wilderness, ‘a million sections of land of unadulterated ass nature’. Alex sees the tempest is ahead, as Walter endures a stroke, making the plane accident on a peak. Ben, Alex, and the puppy make due, with different wounds, however Walter is murdered.
