Herzog follows Dieter Dengler, a German who grew up with a passion for flight and emigrated to the US after World War 2 to join the navy and become a pilot during the Veitnam War. Dieter was shot down, captured and tortured before becoming one of the few American prisoners to escape. Working with Herzog he recreates his story.  

Once again, the director comes up with a fascinating character and vivid taleteller and keeps the viewer gripped and enthralled
