It becomes a journey for the viewers to observe and sense the Iranians' concerns about their safety while flying a passenger plane. This documentary updates the spectators on the U.S. lawmakers' portrayal of economic penalties and question their effectiveness while recognizing several other factors that have turned the sky into a death trap for Iranians.
