At the height of the Cold War, an East German refugee slips aboard an American military duty train leaving West Berlin, deep inside East Germany.

The young American officer in charge of the train doesn't want to do it, but fears that he may have no choice in the matter. The movie is based on a true incident. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Excellent
2 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a true story as I was living in Berlin. My dad Charles Fitz was called out to negotiate the release of the refugee. I believe the character representing his part in this event was Major Finnegan. I remember how he wanted to do more to for the refugee. Great Movie/realistic and shows the fear/hopelessness of the Cold war at the time. I enjoyed the glimpse of history. I could recite a number of stories from our time in Germany and Russia . Sean Flynn did a good job. Story was filmed dark to illustrate the environment. Glad we have moved on. I have many stories about the night the Berlin wall was built.
