Kyle Pratt (Foster) and her daughter Julia (Lawston) are on the flight from Berlin to New York to bury Kyle's husband who, she's told, died after falling (or jumping?) from their apartment roof. She happens to be a propulsion engineer who knows planes inside and out. Kyle wakes from a nap to find Julia simply gone. Worse, the crew and even the passengers don't recall Julia being there, as flight and boarding lists seem to confirm that she wasn't. Tense, psychological and... implausible, but Foster makes it work. Not for the claustrophobic--most of the film's 90 minutes is spernt inside the plane.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in Kyle Pratt’s shoes. This is a really great movie. It’s very suspenseful. It’s about Kyle Patt and Julia, a mother and her daughter. They’re on an airplane flying from Berlin to New York for her husband’s funeral. While on the plane they both fall asleep. When Kyle awakes she sees that her daughter is missing. The weird thing is that no one believes that she had her daughter on board. They try to make her believe that her daughter and her husband died and it’s all in her mind. But she doesn't want to believe that. There’s a twist in the end.
