Taglines: Vengeance is a journey with no return.
Eagerly preparing for the return of his wife and his pregnant daughter from Kiev, construction manager Roman Melnyk anxiously awaits their arrival to pick them up at the airport. Instead, Roman will receive the worst news that anyone could ever receive, as well as the irrevocable certainty that his family has perished in a tragic mid-air collision with no survivors.
However, in the background of this calamity, another tragedy occurs as the well-meaning air traffic controller and family man Jake who is held accountable is squashed under the weight of his actions. In the end, with so many lives lost unjustly and unexpectedly, in the aftermath of the two men’s grief and sorrow, revenge might sound as a sweet alternative, but sometimes, an apology is enough.
