(mbc.net) Small-time crook Bernie Laplante grudgingly rescues an entire plane of crash victims, including TV reporter Gale Gayley.

He then disappears, heading home to say goodbye to his son before he has to go to jail.

Gale turns the absent hero into a media celebrity, offering a million dollar reward to the man who can prove that he is the hero by producing the match to a shoe found in the mud outside the plane.

John Bubber, a down-on-his-luck Vietnam vet, steps forward to claim the reward; he is able to produce the shoe, which he got from Bernie after giving him a lift that fateful night.
