There's only no way out...'Catch-22' follows the adventures and misadventures of a U.S. air squadron in Italy during World War II. Yossarian (Christopher Abbott) is a bombardier, whose frantic obsession every time he goes up on a mission is "to come down alive". The real enemy for Yossarian and his rag-tag bunch of friends is the bureaucracy of the military, inverting logic at every turn. The pinnacle of this is Catch-22, a military by-law which states that if you fly your missions, you're crazy, and don't have to fly them; all you have to do is ask. But if you ask not to, then you're sane, and so you have to fly them.
