Synopsis

Leningrad, 1970. A group of young Jewish dissidents plots to hijack an empty plane and escape the USSR under the disguise of a trip to a local wedding.

45 years later, through a collage of intimate interviews, rare archives and reenactment, filmmaker Anat Zalmanson-Kuznetsov reveals the compelling story of her parents who cracked the Iron
Curtain.
