The Way Back

The Way Back

Their escape was just the beginning
  • It's snow fun.

Inspired by a book describing the events (and which perhaps never actually happened), this film takes 'road trip' movies to the extreme. A group of prisoners in a Russian gulag in Mongolia decide to escape and walk to freedom... all the way out of freezing Mongolia, across the Gobi desert and into India. They have assorted adventures and problems along the way, including letting a 14-year-old girl tag along.
