Holden Crane was a student, who was against what American society used to be and what it had become in his time. Holden was travelling on a bus through the Everglades when drunk driver Ralph Sorrell crashed into the bus. Everyone on the bus was killed except Holden, Mary Brown, Jim Arsdale, the seriously-injured Kevin Kennerman. The survivors teamed up into a group. The group began to move through the swamp, in an attempt to get medical attention for Kevin. [1]

Holden was constantly in conflict with Jim, due to their different views on society. Jim nearly beat Holden to death, before being stopped by Mary. When the group approached a settlement, Ralph turned on them. He did not want to be arrested for his role in the accident and had decided to eliminate the witnesses. He killed Holden first. [1]
