Flightplan script
Flightplan (2005)
Synopsis: Airplane engineer Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) is heading home from Germany to New York on a double-decker Elgin 474 to bury her husband. But three hours into the flight, she awakens to find her young daughter missing -- and the entire flight crew, including Capt. Rich (Sean Bean) and Air Marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard), claims that the child was never on board. Determined to find her daughter, Kyle searches the limited space of the plane, all the while trying to maintain her sanity.

But one of the pots has been badly damaged. Chunks of it are

missing, much of its soil too - as if something had smashed

into it at high speed.

Kyle eyes it. Then she glances up to this building's ROOFTOP,

six stories above us. Quite a drop. CONTINUE INTERCUT:

INT. MORTUARY - EVENING - (RESUMING FLASHBACK)

Kyle opens the door. The Mortuary Director stands here.

KYLE:

Danke.

Mortuary Director takes that to mean "I've said my goodbyes,

thank you for the privacy." He nods. CONTINUE INTERCUT:

INT. KYLE'S APT. BUILDING - LOBBY - NIGHT

It's an old building, no elevator. David heads up the stairs.

KYLE:

David?

David turns. Kyle's at the door.

KYLE (CONT'D)

Could we just... sit in the courtyard

for a minute? Just a minute.

David smiles warmly. Kyle seems so vulnerable tonight -

denying her would be impossible.

DAVID:

Sure.

INT. MORTUARY - EVENING - (RESUMING FLASHBACK)

Mortuary Director stands beside the open casket.

MORTUARY DIRECTOR (IN GERMAN)

You need to enter your code now.

KYLE (IN GERMAN)

Is that really necessary?

MORTUARY DIRECTOR (IN GERMAN)

I'm afraid so. International Law

forbids the repatriation of an

unsecured casket.
