On his way to a statistics conference, John Wilkins is the victim of a freak accident, sucked out of the plane when an emergency door fails mid-flight. Realising he has several minutes before he hits the ground, he reflects on his past, formulates a plan for hitting the ground, and rehearses what he will say to the media on the off-chance that he survives.
