The demise of airline Swissair in 2001 was a huge blow to Switzerland's economy and to the country's morale.

Set during the last days of the doomed airline, the film tells the story of manager Mario Corti's unhappy fate, the last, unlucky CEO at the traditional airline company, as well as of all those nameless people who lost almost everything in the maelstrom of Swissair's downfall: their job, home and their belief in Switzerland.
