Set in and around the eerie expanse of Los Angeles International Airport, Slipstream is an intricately crafted tale of five people whose lives are quietly drawing toward a fateful collision as each struggles to stay afloat in the face of major setbacks, minor failures, and a reckless pursuit of elusive second chances.
When Rudy loses his job cleaning jets at the airport, his sanity and his marriage threaten to follow. While his wife Inez secretly saves her pennies and plots an escape, his coworker Wylie, a bartender at LAX, is about to receive the surprise of his life. Meanwhile, Wylie's brother Logan, freshly released from jail, tries desperately to stay out of trouble while traipsing through a minefield of temptation. At the same time, Logan's daughter Jewell is nursing a heart broken once by an unfaithful girlfriend and again by a father who can't seem to stick around. Though they don't know it, these five people are headed toward an explosive event that will change each of their lives forever. Deftly weaving suspense, humor, and revelation, Slipstream is a rich human drama with the breathless pace of a thriller and the soul of classic Noir.
