Here is the runner-up to Fast Track for Plot of the Week. A part-time charter pilot (James Marshall) in the Pacific Northwest discovers he has a lottery ticket worth $23 million. His wife (Shannen Doherty), who has written him off as a loser, grudgingly agrees to fly to Denver with him and their 13-year-old son (Phillip Van Dyke) to claim the big prize. But his bosses (Heidi Swedberg and John Tench) have sabotaged the small plane. It crashes in the snowy wilderness, where the greedy pair is poised to steal the ticket. This TV movie would be more suspenseful if the villains weren't so foolishly inept.
