Storyline

After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by Anonymous

Something little bit different...not a waste of time!
9 January 2009 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Well, I just saw it! And the movie is still with me. Its not like those movies you watch and just move on. There is something that makes you think. And I like it. Overall that is not a bad movie, but you have to watch it at least twice to really understand. The idea is great, but there is too little time to make it all understandable, so you need to really watch. This is deep movie, so basic entertainment is not what you get. If you are art and emotional kind of person you will find much for yourself from that movie. It reminded me of "Peaceful Warrior". There are no direct similarities, but if you watch it, you will know. Acting is little bit weird, but that is understandable. I am big fan of psychological movies, so I may not be most objective, but still, I will recommend it. Not a waste of time...
