Based on true story of a pilot awarded by Hero of the Soviet Union Award.
Devyataev was a war pilot enrolled in active duty day one of WWII. He shot down 9 enemy planes. On July 13th 1944 near the city of Lvov he had to parachute and got captured. Imprisoned at Lodzi, Zaksenhausen and Usedom camps on 8th of February 1945, he hijacked a German bomber at Penemunde airbase and escaped saving 9 of his friends. Without knowing it, Devyataev escaped on a bomber that had a secret weapon in it’s cargo bay. That left Hitler no chances to win WWII.
