The elite have everything: money, cars, private jets and beautiful
families. David Whitehead and Ben Kipling are the top of the elite,
both influential men with jobs in the media and finance, both
travelling back to New York on a private jet after a vacation with
their families, and both with secrets that could ruin their lives.
Invited on a whim by David's wife, Scott Burroughs, a middle-aged
painter, finds himself on their plane - he needs to visit New York
for a meeting that could spark a revival in his failed career. But
sixteen minutes into its journey the plane crashes into the sea,
Scott and the Whiteheads' four-year-old son are the only survivors.
With a little boy's life in his hands Scott begins to swim - an
epic journey to the coast. In the rectifying hours, he cannot
imagine how his life will be changed forever.
