Summary:In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. This documentary brings together new interviews and stunning aerial footage to tell the little-known story of the ragtag band of brothers who turned the tide of the war and embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride.
