A cocaine-addicted alcoholic airline pilot's world threatens to come crashing down around him when an investigation of a seemingly-heroically averted plane disaster uncovers possible causes more damning than simple mechanical failure.
Functioning drug addict and airline pilot Whip Whitaker finds himself at the helm of SouthJet Flight 227, an airliner tabbed for catastrophic failure, just a day after a sex-fueled all-night drug binge with a flight attendant in an Orlando hotel room. Executing a forced landing that saves 96 out of 102 passengers on board, Whitaker soon finds himself embroiled in a battle with his personal demons when an NTSB investigation into the crash threatens to finger his vices as the cause. Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.
