[Discussing the impossibility of escape with Mickey]
For a break to succeed, you'd have to *start* it a thousand kilometers away from here. And then you'd have to cross ice in winter, or tundra and swamps in the summer. Not to mention the problem of food.
Well, that's no problem. Just take along a sandwich. You know what a sandwich is, don't you, old boy?
Let's just play cards...
No, wait a minute, wait a minute! Look, we got a new boy here, and it's time he knew the facts.

Theatrical feature versions of this American tele-movie released in cinemas in non-US foreign territories have a running time which is ten minutes shorter according to the book "Movies Made for Television" (1987). See more »
Bad movie. Not Realistic. A Hollywood version of the Gulag.
This movie was so unrealistic and bad I had to turn it off. I eventually went back to finish it and it was so laughable it wasn't even funny. It does a great disservice to the actual Gulag dissidents and prisoners. It also downplays the number of millions killed by the Soviet Union in the Gulag camps. Don't waste your time on this movie.
