The astonishing story of Dieter Dengler, a German serving as a US Air Force pilot in the Vietnam war who was shot down over Laos in 1966 and forced to survive as a POW. Herzog takes Dengler back to the jungles of southeast Asia to re-live his harrowing experiences, including a daring escape attempt. This is one of Herzog's most direct and compelling films, and formed the basis of his recent feature Rescue Dawn, in which Christian Bale plays Dengler.
