An alcoholic aerial tramway operator is fired after being caught on the job intoxicated, and retaliates by sabotaging the car's cable.  His act of revenge leaves its passengers stuck 8500 feet in the air as a vicious storm approaches, threatening to weaken the already fragile cable.


Repairing the line is no easy feat, nor is rescuing those aboard.  The riders must come to terms with the possibility of death, while simultaneously praying for a means to escape.  Colorful characters include an unfaithful husband attempting to reconcile with his grieving wife, and an engaged couple pondering their future together.
