Synopsis

Thriller. High school student Alex Browning is possessed of clairvoyant powers. He is not fully aware of this until the day he is due to board a jet to fly from New York to Paris. When he has a vision of an explosion, he runs amok and is escorted off the 'plane. As Alex and his teacher, along with several classmates, argue in the airport lounge, the jet takes off and explodes in mid-air. Alex's classmates are inclined to view him as a kind of freak, while the FBI agents investigating the disaster think sabotage may be involved. While they keep an eye on Alex, the survivors of the explosion begin to die in mysterious circumstances. Alex begins to wonder whether Death is getting its revenge, having seemingly been 'cheated'.
