"Monday, 12 August 1946. Twenty-one French Girl Guides arrive at Le Bourget Airport in Paris en route to a holiday camp in Ireland. Laughing and giggling in the early morning sun, the excited teenagers board an old military aircraft bound for Dublin. But, by the end of the day events take such a horrific turn that their powers of endurance are drastically put to the test and their lives transformed forever. A tribute to heroic acts of courage and kindness, When Our Plane Hit the Mountain is a story of adventure, peril, fortitude and, ultimately, survival."
