In 2015 two men stowed away in the landing gear of a British Airways flight from Johannesburg to Heathrow. One of them fell to his death in Richmond - making worldwide headlines - but miraculously his companion survived an 11 hour flight with temperatures reaching -60C.
Award winning film-maker, Richard Bentley, sets out to uncover who they are, how they got on the plane and why they decided to undertake such a dangerous and desperate mission. As he starts to look into this incredible story he discovers that it is in fact part of a new, chilling and little known phenomenon of people trying to enter the UK illegally.
