This is a 74-minute documentary about Dieter Dengler who, as a young boy, watched Allied planes destroy his village in Germany.
From that instant, he wanted to fly and emigrated to the States, enlisted in the Navy.
He was shipped off to Vietnam.
During his first mission, he was shot down over Laos and taken prisoner.
Despite torture and starvation, he escaped.
In this amazing, award-winning documentary, the director returns to the jungle with Dengler and films his incredible tale of
courage and survival against impossible odds.
It is a fascinating and mind-boggling tale of survival.
