For Americans captured in Vietnam, one war ended. Another was about to begin.

For most combat soldiers, Vietnam was a grunt's-eye-view battlefield war of guns and grenades. But for thousands of American combatants, the battlefield was a dark, vermin-infested cell in a prison compound like Hoa Lo, the hellhole POWs called The Hanoi Hilton. "We can handle this", captured Navy Pilot Lt. Cmdr. Williamson (Michael Moriarty) says to himself, knowing his only defense against , disease and despair is an indomitable will. Writer/director Lionel Chetwynd based this harrowing saga on interviews with more than 100 returned POWs and draws powerful performances from a cast that includes Paul Le Mat, David Soul, Doug Savant, Jeffrey Jones and other riveting actors. To see the film once is to remember it always. Discover the other Vietnam War - the one behind POW camp walls.
