Based on true events, this thought-provoking script, from newcomer Derek Masterson, explores the question – what do our lives mean, if the end leaves us unfulfilled? An ambitious project, it centres on Harry, a pilot with a failed marriage and a forlorn relationship with his daughter. This day is much the same as any other, and yet as the plane reaches the end of its five minute flight, Harry will have to face questions in his life – is he a total failure, or have all roads led to this moment?
But Harry is not alone on this journey. Joining him are the last passengers - Toni, Simon, Philip and Ellis. All different and yet all the same, they share Harry’s dichotomy. Simon’s brashness, Ellis's stoicism and Philip’s excitement are the parallels to Toni’s pacifism. The group will join the pilot on their flight, their last flight, and together they must find themselves.
