OUR STORIES

IT WAS DECISION TIME. HE FELT FOR THE HANDLE ON HIS LEFT. HE YANKED IT. SHUT HIS EYES. IT WOULD TAKE A FEW SECONDS TO KNOW IF IT HAD WORKED. OR IF HE WAS GOING TO HIT THE GROUND AND DIE.

In 1971, a man known as D.B. Cooper hijacked an American scheduled airline and demanded 200,000 dollars and a parachute be brought on board. Then, he left the plane.

What did Cooper do afterwards?

Thirty five years later, Rusty, a nice boy but an unfortunate victim of circumstances, meets an old man, called Carter who shows him that “you always get a second chance…”

 

* Two stories packed with adventure, acts of bravery and humanity, weaved together with narrative mastery.

*A powerfully honest and moving story, with a surprising twist.
