It's hard to publicly admit your fears, especially when it's a fear of flying and you've already bought holiday tickets with your new boyfriend. In preparation for her trip, Sarah signs up for an exclusive course designed to cure her fear of flying, the final test being a round flight from London to Reykjavik. What sounds good on paper becomes complicated when the group of participants includes a grumpy writer, an inventor, his influencer girlfriend and a shy guide. When turbulence hits, anxiety gives way to a wave of paranoia that turns the journey into a race against the clock at the end of which, literally, every man flies for himself.
