Log Line:

This short but lyrical piece of cinema can be described as a thriller, a horror film, a comedy, a religious epic, a tragedy, an action flick, or as a Motion Poem about 30,000 feet.


Who hasn't dreamed or wondered what it would be like to fall from a great height? How long would it take? What thoughts would pass through one's mind? Poetic simplicity becomes an extremely powerful film when a camera is thrown from an airplane at 30,000 feet.
