You just boarded a flight to New York.
There are one hundred and forty-three other passengers onboard.
What you don’t know is that thirty minutes before the flight your pilot’s family was kidnapped.
For his family to live, everyone on your plane must die.
The only way the family will survive is if the pilot follows his orders and crashes the plane.
Enjoy the flight.
What would you choose, your family or the lives of over one hundred under your care?
This is the dilemma Captain Bill Hoffman of flight 416 is confronted with.
His wife and his two kids have been taken hostages by a terrorist and unless he crashes the plane when he is told, they won't survive the day.
Bill is told he can't contact anyone, he can't say anything to Ben, his copilot. He can't share his news with the Crew either or his family is gone.
What to do?
Falling has an excellent premise to trap you and ensnare you all the way through.
I could feel the tension in the cabin. The desperation and fear of the passengers and the determination of the Crew which by the way had a fantastic characterization. Bid Daddy, Jo and Kellie are the crew you want to have in a situation like this other than Bill or Sully Sullenberger for that matter.
