A young man works as a photographer for a magazine. In 1981 he was flown into an Alaskan wilderness to photograph the natural beauty and some rare flowers. He had everything prepared - photo equipment, 500 rolls of film, and several days of provisions. He kept a diary of events.

Three months later, the rescuers found him, dead. They found his diary - the entries in his diary, which at first detailed his wonder and fascination with the wildlife around him, turned into a pathetic record of a nightmare.

He wrote, "I think I should have used more foresight about arranging my departure. I’ll soon find out." He waited and waited, hoping that somehow a helicopter will fly past but no one came to his rescue.

He had carefully mapped out his venture, but had made no provision to be flown out of the area.
