Select a format:

Four Ukrainian Jews are engaged in a bitter fight for recognition within the Soviet Union. When one of them is captured after shooting a policeman, they know time is running out. Their only hope is to hijack a plane, fly to the West and then on to Israel.

Britain is the only country that allows the plane to land. Charlie Webster, an Intelligence officer, is brought in to negotiate with the hijackers: are they political refugees or dangerous criminals? As the British government prevaricates, the hijackers become increasingly desperate, losing patience – and control.
