One plane crash is not so big calamity.
Because just 6 people die of 102. Plane
is broken and some controls hadn't been clicked before flight. But pilot
Whitaker (Denzel Washington) is alcoholic and stoner. He had some drink and
drugs before plane crash and while flying.
Whitaker's lawyer says this miracle saving was a desire of god and he induces investigation team. Everyone says yes this is a miracle by god. Lawyer destroys toxic report of pilot Whitaker which was written after crash.
Pilot Whitaker defends himself with saying he had drunk alcohol before flight and he had drunk while flying too but he has saved 96 people, despite any pilot couldn't jump in simulator: Although plane had been broken.
Co-pilot prays, everyone prays, but Whitaker defends himself against of normative law rules. Yes I had become drunk but plane had been broken.
Even if Whitaker was not drunk, plane will fall on a field and maybe all would have died or all would have been saved but pilot Whitaker wouldn't be arrested. But normative law rules aren't so elastic and fate is not so clear or is not so estimated, oh fair is not here.
But God knows. God saves 96 passengers with a miracle. Whitaker you will lie in court. Because every people believe this is a miracle by god. Whitaker says oh yea "flying gods' (Remember Sumerians)
No he doesn't lie and he goes in prison. He doesn't slandered about died job friend and he confesses. He wins but god and god lovers lose.
