The film is based on actual events. World renowned, investigative journalist Helen Eastman returns to the UK after a disastrous assignment in the Middle East and takes a new job at a local paper to be closer to her air traffic controller boyfriend, Joe Forbes. Rather than be happy that she has finally given up her high profile career to be closer to him, he is despondent having been suspended from work following a serious JASP Air in-flight safety incident on his shift. The incident is not released to the public, triggering Helen's instinctive journalistic curiosity to ask. Why not? Helen convinces her new editor Nick Robertson that there must be more to the incident known as Flight 313, then JASP Airlines and the aviation regulators are admitting to. Trainee journalist Natasha Stevens joins Helen to investigate matters further. As they probe the aviation industry for answers, a well-orchestrated pattern of denial emerges and they soon discover they are not the first to ask difficult ... Written by Tristan Loraine

The vision is there. .What next.
10 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

The cinematographer of this movie does not do it justice, I'm irritated. This is filmmaking basic, isn't it? I won't bother to look to see who it was... He should have been fired at the early ' dailies' stage... The reason for this is obvious, some scenes are lit sometimes incongruously different to the next...and they don't splice well together…

Some of it is shot reasonably well... Some of it is shot amateurish.... The only reason I comment is that this could have been a much better film... Someone should tell the investors...

It all comes back to the judgment of the director anyway... And...directors can't squander good opportunities, can they?...

I like the Greek chick tho from StarTrek though Marina Sirtis... She should have been allowed to give herself to the job, there is personality there, rather than there be the human robot that we got...... Never listen to the suits...
