1970: In a frantic bid for political asylum, a Lithuanian sailor jumps across 10 feet of the Atlantic’s icy water from a Soviet fishing vessel to an American patrol boat’s deck. To his horror, the Americans return him to the Soviets. Told through incredible archival footage and re-lived by the would-be defector Simas Kudirka, the film chronicles a stranger-than-fiction journey of imprisonment, twists of fate, and the price of becoming a symbol of freedom.
