Hearing disabled 17 year old Iva, her older brother and younger sister, has lost her mother in an accident, and the whole family is in agony, not making it easier when she finds out that her mother kept secrets from them.
A plane engine explodes. A plane goes down towards the ground. It looks like the end for the people aboard. But for some of them, it is a new beginning. Up in the air between Stockholm and Oslo, we follow seven people and a heart on its way from one body to another. All seven has something they are running from. When the heavy plane body is diving down towards the ground, they see life in another perspective.Written by

Brilliant film, excellently acted, beautifully shot (at last, a modern film where they could afford to buy a tripod for the camera! No hideous wobbly hand-held nonsense here). A well-constructed intelligent drama that will appeal to anyone looking for something different to the shallow, violent comic-book rubbish that is mostly churned out nowadays by the Hollywood sausage machine. Scandinavian and European film-making is a breath of fresh air. I would unhesitatingly add this film to the many from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, France, etc. that in recent years show that quality movies are not a thing of the past. RECOMMENDED!!
