Where is the plane going?
16 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One scene of the film shows a plane full of illegal immigrants that are being deported. Where is this plane supposed to land, as the people seem to be from everywhere: Asians, Africans, Arabs, etc. So one must wonder whether the plane is supposed to hop from continent to continent, discharging people along the way!

I have heard of a ''secret'' airport, formerly an airbase, in La Macaza, Quebec, serving for such a purpose. This might be an unfounded rumour, but sometimes rumours are based on reality. That doesn't change the fact that if such a plane were to take off with such a diverse group of people, it could not land in just one place.
