Christian Bale, Steve Zahn
Based on the true story of German-born Dieter Dengler (Christian Bale), a U.S. fighter pilot during the Vietnam War, Rescue Dawn
provides an astonishing story of heroism and bravery. When Dengler's plane crashes over Laos, he is taken captive and sent to a POW camp where he meets fellow prisoners (Steve Zahn, etc.). Enduring unlivable conditions, unbearable hunger, and nonstop illness, Dengler quickly begins planning his escape. Though he has no idea where he is or which direction is safety, he knows he can't stop fighting for his life.
