AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I know what you're thinking: this movie has already been made. Why make it again? But hear me out. I really think I could make it better. For one, we could have it be a bit more gritty and realistic. So, instead of the snakes—which, I admit, are a fun touch, if a bit far-fetched—it'd be a normal American Airlines flight, and the fantastical element is introduced when the plane's just sitting on the tarmac for two hours and forty-five minutes. Yes, that's right, just sitting there. No, the audience doesn't know the reason; neither do the characters. Instead of dramatic irony, it's, like, the audience and the characters are bound together by American Airlines in their powerlessness.' (Introduction)
