The infamous Colditz Castle was a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp well-known for being escape-proof. A group of British solders held there came up with a plan to escape. They built a glider from bedsheets and floorboards, intending to launch off the roof and "fly away." But the war ended and they never got the chance to try it. Now a team of aero engineers and carpenters return to Colditz to rebuild the glider and see if it could have worked. 2011/color/60 min/NR/widescreen.
