A blind girl, a teacher, a machine worker, a musician, a stoner, a mystery writer, a businessman, a mysterious Englishman, and a raving psychopath in a business suit are on a flight to Boston. When the plane passes through a mysterious time warp, they find themselves utterly alone when the rest of the passengers and all of the crew vanish. Diverting the plane to Bangor, Maine, the survivors manage to land, where as they discover that time seems to stand still and that they seem to be the only people left on the planet. To complicate matters, mysterious creatures called Langoliers are in hot pursuit. The Langoliers' job is to erase moments in time that have already passed into history. The survivors still exist because they were asleep when the plane passed through the warp, and they determine that if they can all be asleep once again when the plane returns, they will survive. However, one passenger must remain awake, and doomed to die, to pilot the plane on its return through the warp.
Young talented actress Kate Maberly plays Dinah Bellman, a blind girl whose hearing is far better than the others, causing her to hear the munching sounds of the Langoliers before the others do. She also seemed to have additional senses beyond the norm, as she seemed to know things the others didn't as to what was going on.
