The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
A routine evening flight from Berlin to Paris. Pilot and co-pilot go through the preparatory steps in the cockpit, the machine takes off. Shortly thereafter, a horror scenario: on the surveillance monitor, the pilots see that terrorists have control of the passenger cabin and are now trying to get into the cockpit. An unimaginable struggle begins in which all involved reach their physical and mental limits.
