While Producing Lee Daniels' "The Butler" and Jean-Marc Vallee's "Dallas Buyers Club", legendary indie Film Producer, Cassian Elwes encountered an unruly passenger on a Jet Blue flight from JFK to LAX. The frightening events tweeted by Cassian the same night went viral and made headline news.


The unruly passenger was detained in a maximum-security facility in Denver to face a 20-year sentence. The emotional impact of the incident continued to resonate within Cassian and threatened to derail the movies he was producing unless he could come to grips with it. This film is a recreation of the actual events as recalled and directed by Cassian Elwes.
