Synopsis:
A 747 Jetliner takes off from an international airport and within minutes it is inexplicably threatening the lives of thousands as it plummets to the ground. The pilot, Keller (Robert Powell), manages to avoid total catastrophe by bringing the aircraft down in a field but even so, the resulting fire from a ruptured fuel tank ensures that from the plane, at least, there are no survivors. Except one: the pilot himself. Totured with guilt and unable to explain the reason for the disaster Keller sets upon a course of discovery, desperately seeking to overcome the temporary loss of memory that he has sustained.
Hobbs (Jennt Agutter), a young woman who tries to help Keller to unravel the mysteries of both his flight and the local events. But tragedy compounds upon tragedy as it seems that the dead passengers will not release their grip on Keller, nor on anyone who stands in the path of his investigations. In a final confrontation with both his dead passengers and the responsiblity for the crash the truth is revealed. The collective personality of the dead can rest in peace. And so can Keller....
