This is a realistic portrayal of three WW II Allied officers who attempt to help a group of refugees escape from Italy, through the Alps, to freedom in Switzerland. The players are not actors, but actual victims of the war portraying their struggles to escape the Nazis. Likewise, the three

officers are pilots, shot down over Switzerland, who tried acting before returning home. Despite the actors' amateur status, they deliver surprisingly good performances. An overriding message is the unity of all people. This comes alive in a scene in which the refugees sing a song together in

different languages.
