This film is based on the true story of U.S. Navy Lieutenant Dieter Dengler's (Christian Bale) first mission over North Vietnam in 1966. When he is shot down and captured by Laotian troops, Dieter admits that he is an American, is tortured, and taken to a POW camp where he meets veterans of the camp–Americans Lt. Duane Martin (Steve Zahn) and Eugene DeBruin (Jeremy Davies)–who have been prisoners for two years. Now, Dieter plans a death defying escape in which he will lead fellow POWs through the jungles of Laos in a race to freedom.
