Historic movie which takes us in the times of second world war. We see Louie Zamperini as a pilot of the bombardier plane in the crew of US Army Air Forces B-24 Liberator. He is sent on the mission to bomb on the Nauru island which is under Japanese influence. He is fighting for long and during the combat crew members inside the plane have injured a lot.
The plane itself is damaged at many places. On duty pilot Phil tries to land the plane and gets success as one of the tire of the plane get exploded while landing. When Louie returns with his crew, he is sent on another mission with the healthy crew members and few new ones. Their mission is to search and rescue the army persons. They are given a place which earlier is used for spare parts. The plane is not of good quality and its left engines fail as the team takes off.
