When two giant airliners collide over Kansas City, aluminum and dead bodies shower the streets below.
Controller Kyle Matthews insists that the two aircraft were two thousand feet apart just seconds before. But when the FBI plays back a tape recording, they can clearly hear him issuing an order that probably caused the collision.
Complicating matters further is the fact that the Federal Aviation Administration doesn't like Kyle because of his outspoken views on overhauling the air traffic control system. Even though Kyle's own private investigator finds signs of a bomb at the crash site, and additional evidence points to another suspect, the FBI and FAA are both ready to rush to judgment.
Things are looking grim until an anonymous benefactor sends his beautiful daughter, Nancy, with an offer to pay Kyle's legal expenses. The FBI looks at more evidence but still can't be dissuaded from pursuing its case.
Kyle is now desperate to prove his innocence. But whether or not he lives or dies by lethal injection may all come down to whether a prosecutor who realizes his own government is withholding evidence digs deeper to find the truth in "Aluminum Showers."
