A romantic drama inspired by real-life flying couple Bill Lancaster and Jessie 'Chubbie' Miller, whose aviation exploits in the 1920s and 30s led to Lancaster's mysterious death in the Sahara in 1933. In 'The Last Flight', Marion Cotillard plays Marie, Lancaster's wilful and stubborn flying partner and lover, who flies solo into the desert to try and find him. Arriving in the Tuareg heartlands, she meets Antoine, a rebellious captain from a remote French camel corps, who gets caught up in her dangerous mission. In the oppressive heat and under the massive, empty skies, the pair find themselves falling in love.
