How far would you go to cure yourself of a phobia?
Producer Rick Pluta has decided to jump out of a plane in
order to conquer his fear of heights. But why do other
people do it? Join Rick Pluta while he takes his skydiving
lessons, tells his family and friends about his decision to
jump, and talks to skydiving experts and fellow novices.
Skydiving was valiantly produced by Rick Pluta, who we hope
will do equally foolish things in the future so that he can
tell us all about it.
