When a small plane crashes in the middle of the Canadian wilderness, a lone woman must battle the elements and odds to survive.

The series stars Melissa Barrera as the main character Liv Rivera is desperate to reach Inuvik after her flight is canceled, lawyer Liv Rivera hitches a ride on a small private plane with two guys then, disaster strikes.

The show takes us through Liv’s survival, love life and past traumas in her life before the disaster strikes. This also plays part in hallucinations that she goes through during this trying times as she tries to find help in the deserted crash site.

This is what Melisa Barrera had to say in an interview with tvinsider.

Were there any survival skills you already knew? What kind of training did you do, if anything?

Melissa Barrera: I didn’t know any survival skills. I’m a pretty handsy person, so I feel like I knew certain things like the physics of building a shelter, pulleys. I thought, “Oh, maybe that’ll come in handy,” but it didn’t.

The most preparing that I did was the underwater stuff. I had to do a scuba certification training to get comfortable under the water and with the equipment, because I was going to spend a lot of time underwater. I did cold water training, because the lake that we were shooting at was frozen a week before we started shooting. I had to get my body used to the freezing temperatures, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to move, so I did a lot of laying in my bathtub with ice during my quarantine before shooting. And then, I did breath-hold training, because a lot of the scenes underwater I did on breath hold, so I had to do a little bit of training to expand my lung capacity just to hold my breath for longer.

That was the extent of my physical preparation for the show, because that’s what I was most nervous about. I was just coming off of Carmen, so I was in pretty good shape and I felt confident about the land stuff, but the water stuff is what had me a little nervous.

The episodes are relatively and mercifully short, with most running 30-some-odd minutes; even so, the show can’t entirely escape the common sensation of a movie concept stretched out to roughly twice that length. Words from Brian Lowry CNN.com.

I would recommend the show personally as the thrill of it will keep you routed through out the limited series. Each episode being around 20-30 min this is a one day show. Go get some popcorn, sit down and watch it on Netflix. Enjoy!

She filed a complaint against him in December 2021 but the case was closed in April with no charges filed against Yeong-su, according to Yonhap news agency.

But the prosecutor’s office in Suwon reopened it and investigated the allegations, which Yeong-su has always denied.

The trial of the Golden Globe winner has now been set for February at the district court in the South Korean city of Seongnam, it emerged on Thursday. (01.12.22)

Specific details about the case could not be confirmed at this stage, Kim Myeong-un, an official in the district prosecutors’ office said according to Sky News.

Best known for his role as Oh Il-name in Netflix’s ‘Squid Game’, Yeong-su was released without detention after initially being accused of inappropriately touching a woman’s body in 2017.

The actor last year told the local Yonhap media agency he had “held hands” with the woman “to show the way around a lake”.

He apologised to the alleged victim, but insisted he had done so because the woman claimed she “wouldn’t make a fuss about it”.

Yeong-su also said an apology “doesn’t mean that I admit the charges”.

He won South Korea’s first Golden Globe award in January for his role in ‘Squid Game’, which saw poverty-hit contestants play childhood games with fatal consequences in a bid to win 45.6 billion won.

Both parties were declared legally single in March, with Kardashian also dropping “West” from her last name.

Issues around the division of property and custody of their children were resolved in court documents filed on Tuesday. The two parties should consult with each other on major decisions about their children’s welfare, the documents state. Expenses for the children’s security, school and college will be shared.

In addition, Ye is expected to pay $200,000 a month in child support – which the New York Post reported is because the children will spend the majority of their time with Kardashian.

The couple have four children: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.

In several statements submitted earlier, Kardashian, 42, had said she “very much” wanted the marriage to be ended, adding that this would “help Kanye to accept” that the relationship was over.

Ye, 45, had previously fought against the separation.

It comes after several companies cut ties with Ye over controversies including anti-Semitic comments. He has faced controversy in recent months, and has been dropped by several brands, including Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga.
