Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is a burned-out veteran of the Air Marshals service. He views the assignment not as a life-saving duty, but as a desk job in the sky. However, today’s flight will be no routine trip.
Shortly into the trans-Atlantic journey from New York to London, he received a series of mysterious texts ordering him to have the government transfer $150 million into a secret account, or a passenger will die every 20 minutes.
What follows is a nail-biting cat and mouse game played at 40,000 feet, with the lives of 200 passengers hanging in the balance.
