A mesmerizing, often humorous film chronicles the gallant escapade of a group of Jewish American pilots who answer a call for help in 1948. In secret and at great personal risk, this ragtag band of brothers smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain, and flew for Israel in its War of Independence, helping to turn the tide of the war. A flight of personal discovery and renewed Jewish pride.
