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

Trivia

The license plates used in the film feature the slogan "Beautiful Evergreen State", a combination of the license plate slogan of British Columbia ("Beautiful British Columbia", where the movie was filmed), and the state nickname of Washington (The Evergreen State). This same plate was used in the 2017 Hallmark movie "Garage Sale Mystery: The Beach Murder". See more »

Goofs

After Claire leaves Norman's apartment one of the passengers tries to keep her from driving away. The first screen shot from inside the car shows her pulling away. The camera angle then cuts immediately to a shot from outside the vehicle and shows the car stationary for a split second just before Claire pulls away. The editing is off by about a second.

User Reviews

A very good watch
19 December 2008 | by rstone-27See all my reviews

Though there are similarities in this film to others, ie... not completely original... it is a very good, very touching movie. It has its moments of intensity, its greatness in the acting and directing. Its not a classic, but with all of the mediocre works that are out there to take your money, this is one that would NOT be a waste of your time.

I would highly recommend this film if you are into suspense, drama, intrigue of any nature.

There are certain aspects that are left open, but so minor that it doesn't distract from the impact of the movie.

All in all -- a very good watch.
