In the blink of an eye, the biblical Rapture strikes the world. Millions of people disappear in an instant as terror and chaos spread around the world and darkness enfolds the planet. Airline pilot Ray Steele is in the air at that moment and struggles to save the lives of the passengers that remain on his flight, as the world below loses its ability to help his plane to safety. Running out of fuel, his equipment failing, his crew panicking, Ray must guide the plane with the help of GWN reporter Buck Williams, who takes over the role of co-pilot in the face of the crisis. On the ground, Ray's daughter Chloe frantically searches for her mother and young brother in the chaos and destruction. Based on the novel of the same name by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.
