Overview

In 1985 a U.S. Navy P-3 Orion crashes while on a sensitive recon mission in the Sea of Japan just off the coast of North Korea. Their classified mission and crash location mean that they cannot expect any help from their government. Complicating the situation is Admiral Evans, a passenger on the mission who recently came from classified duty in the Pentagon. If he is captured by the North Koreans the security of the United States is at risk. The crew must now use their training in survival, evasion, resistance and escape to get home. This story is based on real missions flown by the Navy and written by a pilot who flew them.

All proceeds of this version go to support "Heart-to-Heart Ministries" for projects in support of Romanian orphanages.
