The true, dramatic story of Franz von Werra, the only German prisoner-of-war in Britain to escape and return to his homeland. The BAttle of Britain is at its height. Out of the vapour-traced sky a Messerschmitt spins and plunges onto British soil. Even though the pilot is captured, he is extremely confident and an official interrogation does not deter him from his one objective - to escape and return home against all the odds. His bid for freedom takes him from England to Canada and into the still neutral United States - before making his way back to Germany. The One That Got Away stars Hardy Kruger - a real-life prisoner of war, who escaped from the Americans on three occasions - as the cocky and charismatic von Werra, who is supported by numerous British screen legends including Michael Goodliffe Colin Gordon and Alec McGowan It is directed by Roy Ward Baker - a stalwart of British films and filmed series since the late 1940s.
