The film takes place in an aircraft cabin. It starts with the narrator speaking in first person about their fear of flying; specifying the real concerns behind flying that they have.

The film shifts through different passengers’ expressions of concern, discomfort and suspicion. The film concludes by showing that the fearful eyes are focused on a Middle Eastern-looking man, evidently the narrator, who explains that his fellow passengers’ fear of him, and the possible consequences, is his fear of flying.
