Based on a true story its the untold story of Italian World War II POW"S in Jan 1946. Luca Zingaretti stars as one of over 50,000 Italian Prisoners of War detained at POW camps in the U.S. Roy Schneider stars as Colonel Gartner, the Commander of the camp.

The phone lines get cut, and the two men realize they are completely isolated from the outside world. It is up to each man now to escape the camp.An untold and rarely known fact of US held Italian POW"S Written by
Had some great dialog on propaganda vs truth. Is not the distribution of holocaust photos during WWII similar to right to life efforts today? Endng seemed depressing but probably representative of the futility of war. Raises good ethical questions about humane limits of persuasion. US prison camps did a lot better than German concentration camps but still had some abuses. A particular scene where a prisoner feigned illness but was treated anyway probably would have never happened in a German concentration camp. Amazing how much propaganda was fed to (and believed by) the German and Italian armies. The setting in TX was very realistic as I can verify from my time stationed in San Antonio when I was in the military. A "must see" movie.
