Fifteen-year-old Suzy Gilstrap stars in a holiday sequel to her 1980 hit TV movie, Skyward. Cast as a paraplegic pilot, she makes secret plans to fly her grandfather (Jack Elam) home for Christmas. Gilstrap is herself a paraplegic (see story, page 169), and the film packs an emotional and inspirational wallop.
