Now Jack's skills are unexpectedly challenged again when he finds himself aboard a domestic flight that's been hijacked by a man named Gilliad (Anthony Michael Hall,The Dead Zone), head of a terrorist organization called the People's Separatist Movement. The demand is the release of their leader Silas Jansen from prison. But the skies aren't the thing that the PSM has commandeered.
