Mark Leyburn, a Canadian pilot laid off from his job at the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, is sent to an outplacement and career coaching service to help him find a new job. The problem is his identity is so tied up with being a pilot; he struggles to adapt to his new reality of joblessness. As the months tick by and the pandemic worsens, he grows more and more despondent. Ironically, it’s not the career coach who finally helps him see that he’s more than just a pilot, but the kind-hearted receptionist with whom he makes a connection. She encourages him to explore his other interests, resulting in a surprising and colourful change of direction for Mark.
