Synopsis

Nick Falzone is a control freak. An air traffic control freak. He 'pushes tin' at New York's Terminal Radar Approach Control center. Part catacomb, part frat house, TRACON is the chaotic air traffic facility on Long Island that handles up to 7,000 flights a day into and out of the finite airspace above Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark airports. Nick works the Newark radar scopes, the busiest of them all, and he is the best of the best. That is, until Russell Bell comes to town. After stints in Albuquerque, Phoenix and Denver, Russell--a cross between a motorcycle-riding cowboy and Zen master--has come to New York looking for heavier traffic. Once Russell stood in the turbulence wake of a departing 747 just to see what it felt like. Call him crazy... he'll take it as a compliment. Fueled by caffeine and machismo, a rivarly ensues between Nick and Russell. The one-upmanship becomes a contest of wit and wills--a game where the winner--not the loser--could lose it all... his job, his marriage, his mind.
