British war drama based on the true story of Lt. Franz von Werra (Hardy Krüger), the only German prisoner-of-war interred in Britain to successfully escape and return to Germany. After being shot down in his plane over Britain, Lt. von Werra is kept captive in the North of England and sets his sights on a cunning plan to escape the clutches of the British and make it back to his homeland. With the story of his escape reaching the news and the authorities beginning to close in on him, von Werra must act fast if he is to survive the shoot-to-kill order with his name on it and reach the sanctity and familiarity of Germany.
