In 1965, an American pilot on a top-secret bombing mission was shot down over Laos and taken to a hellish prison camp deep in the impenetrable jungle of Vietnam. What followed was one of the most remarkable and harrowing experiences of the entire Vietnam War. Inspired by the true story of Dieter Dengler (Bale) and written and directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog, <I>Rescue Dawn<I> is an uncanny tale of camaraderie and betrayal, courage in the face of despair, and triumph over tragedy.Based on true events, U.S. fighter pilot Lt. Dieter Dengler is shot down and imprisoned during the Vietnam War and plans a daring escape with fellow captives.
