Inspired by the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight, and the most daring rescue mission ever attempted.
In July 1976, an Air France flight from Tel-Aviv to Paris via Athens was hijacked and forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. The Jewish passengers were separated and held hostage, with the hijackers demanding the release of terrorists held in Israeli prisons. After much debate, the Israeli government sent an elite commando unit to raid the airfield and rescue the hostages.
Crime drama based on true events, starring Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl and Eddie Marsan.
