Based on actual events.

Pulling out a gun and a grenade, he allows most of the passengers to leave, but he keeps seven of them hostage demanding a ransom and safe passage back to his country. Throughout the journey, scattered flashbacks of those onboard reveal the complex web of guilt, secrets and regrets they cling to as they fear for their lives.
