Set in the years before the Vietnam war kicked off, a US Navy pilot is running bombing runs in Laos when he is shot down over enemy Territory and captured.
He is then taken to a local governor, told he will be set free if he signs a document denouncing the United States. he declines and is then tortured and placed in a POW camp.
In the camp there are two other americans and some chinese prisoners, food is scarce, the guards are violent and life is rough.
It’s a great story about how life in a POW camp wouldve been and the steps they take in their escape are fantastic.
Well worth watching, 8/10.
