In this award-winning documentary, acclaimed director Werner Herzog tells the remarkable story of Dieter Dengler, a German who moved to America at the age of 18 to enlist in the U.S. Air Force. After being shipped off to Vietnam, Dieter was shot down over Laos and taken prisoner. Despite torture and starvation - at one point he weighed 85 pounds - he escaped, and after a harrowing journey through the jungle on foot, returned home. Herzog accompanies Dieter back to the jungle to tell his incredible tale.
