A story of bravery, self-sacrifice and human dignity put on trial by the merciless power of nature. A young pilot gets kicked out of the military air force after breaching an absurd order. He starts working as a second pilot in the civil aviation. Always straight-forward, he is not on best terms with his new colleagues. During a flight to Asia his crew receives a distress call from the volcanic island and takes a decision to flya dangerous rescue mission. Only together the crew can survive the disaster.

English After a long time a solid disaster flick and this time from Russia. The first hour is rather introductory, but thanks to the very likeable actors and the theme of planes and pilots I was more or less always alert and interested, and once the volcano erupts there is no shortage of suspense until the end. Brilliantly shot, obviously a Russian blockbuster. The passage where they had to move the passengers from one plane to another in mid-air belongs to the highlights of the film. I recommend it. 80%.
