(mbc.net) Dieter Dengler (Christian Bale) is an American fighter pilot struck down in Laos.  His captors agree to set him free, provided he signs a document condemning America's military actions.  When he refuses he is placed in prison with a number of other soldiers; many of whom have been imprisoned for years.

When Dieter suggests that the inmates escape, they are skeptical of its possibility.  Ultimately, three do agree to join Dengler in his efforts, but whether or not anyone survives the ordeal remains to be seen.
