The true story of Victor Herman, an American who spent eighteen years imprisoned and in exile in Siberia after going to Russia with his parents as a teenager in 1931, and another eighteen years fighting for the right to return to the United States. Willie Nelson made his TV acting debut as Red Loon, a fellow American in the Siberian gulag, and Ben Cross made his American TV debut as a Soviet general, who recognized young Herman's athletic abilities and tried to get him to identify himself as a Russian. The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures named this Best Movie Made for Television in its first annual award in this category.
