On a stormy night during World War II, a female pilot with top secret cargo talks her way on board a bomber plane about to take-off. The crass all-male crew reluctantly agrees, but their suspicions about her identity and the mysterious cargo quickly grow. Just then a shadow appears in the clouds - was it the incoming Japanese fleet? Or caused by some other sinister stowaway?

Did You Know?


During WWII the Women Airforce Service Pilots -- WASP for short, was created by the USAAF. These lady pilots, more than 1,100 flew military aircraft. Single to multi-engine aircraft. From non-combat like transports and spotters, to fighters and bombers including the B-17, B-26, and B-29 bombers. Henry "Hap" Arnold said he wasn't sure "whether a slip of a girl could fight the controls of a B-17 in heavy weather." Later he ate crow and admitted how wrong he really was when he said "Now in 1944, it is on the record that women can fly as well as any man!" See more »


The US flag shown at the end of the Snafu animation at the start is Heft's 50-state version that did not come into use until after Alaska and Hawaii were granted statehood (1959). The rectangular 6x8 grid of stars was the appropriate design for the time. See more »

User Reviews

Great lead performance downgraded by horrible writing
29 September 2020 | by bartgodboySee all my reviews

Chloe Frace Moretz is very good in this role for what she is given to work with and you can definitely tell that she is an actress with a lot of range and potential. Sadly, even her performance cannot hide the poor writing.

I was completely baffled when I saw Max Landis in the writing credits. Maybe that's the reason why some parts of the script was poor.
