Summary
A powerful look at the history of plane hijackings. "Romantic" skyjackers fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of the 1960's and 70's. However, by the 1990's the situation had changed and the colorful characters were replaced on our screens by stories of anonymous bombs in suitcases. Combines archival news footage of hijackings with an array of enticing images, from the surreal to the ordinary.
