VIP stands for Very Important People, and this film, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, plays out in the VIP lounge of Heathrow Airport. Planes are grounded due to weather conditions, and several stories interconnect as various wealthy and influential people wait to catch their flights. Each individual is facing a personal crisis that is made worse by the delayed flights. The main plot concerns the Taylor and Burton characters, whose marriage is coming unraveled. The subplots, featuring an exceptional cast, deal with themes of money, choices and the profound consequences of even predictable incidents, such as fog in London.
