Ahmad and Mourad, two Lebanese cousins, hijack a plane en route from Athens to Beirut. When things don’t turn out as expected, they decide to land it in Strovia, a Soviet-backed Arab island state off the coast of Lebanon. The people’s republic of Strovia was founded in the 1960s after a successful social uprising. It has since garnered both the interest and backing of the USSR. As the hijack situation gets pulled into the escalating cold war between the USSR and USA, negotiations enter limbo. Passengers and hijackers alike have to learn to coexist in order to survive the longest plane hijack in history. As time passes, Ahmad and Mourad’s visions of the hijack diverge, and a slowly simmering mini cold war starts manifesting on board the TCA186.
