On the morning of September 11, 2001, troubled air stewardess Montine (Melissa Leo) shows young Muslim Omar (Anthony Keyvan) to his seat on a flight from LA to New York. Then the world changes. Grounded in Texas, Montine feels compelled to guide the boy through the chaos and take him back to his family in New York. But with suspicion and anxiety on every face they see, the journey is far from smooth. The drama is handled with sensitivity and care, and Leo is as brilliant as ever.
