ABOUT THE FILM:

The 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killed 270 innocent people and began the new age of terrorism. Bound together in tragedy, the victims' relatives fought for justice, only to watch it unravel for Libyan oil.

Abandoned by the United States government in their hour of need, American families of the dead weaponized the media and refused to let the matter be swept under the rug. With nothing left to lose, they demanded answers for the crime, brought down the once-iconic Pan Am World Airways for its negligence, and changed forever the way governments handled victims of terrorism. Along the way, they found the comfort they needed not from elected officials, but from the small, quiet Scottish village of Lockerbie, which lost eleven of its own citizens when the wreckage of Pan Am Flight 103 rained down upon it.

After a groundbreaking police investigation and international criminal trial, which resulted in a guilty verdict against a Libyan intelligence officer, the story seemed to have come to an end. That is, until Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi used his nation's vast oil reserves to undermine justice by threatening to withdraw from a massive British Petroleum (BP) contract if the convicted murderer was not released. The British and American governments did nothing as Scottish officials caved to Gaddafi's demands and released the prisoner, proving that with great oil wealth, you can literally get away with mass murder.

The Pan Am Flight 103 families watched in horror as everything they fought for was seemingly lost. However, justice would eventually come from the most unlikely source - the oppressed Libyan people, who rose up during the Arab Spring to take back their country from Gaddafi's iron grip.
