South Jet 227 departs from Orlando, Florida, for what should be a routine trip.

Captain Whip Whitaker is at the helm of the Jackson-Ridgefield 88 passenger jet, along with first officer Ken Evans, who is Whip’s polar opposite in every way. But the flight soon encounters heavier than- anticipated turbulence as they fly into a massive storm. Flight is Robert Zemeckis’s latest action film, starring Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly and John Goodman.
