From the pages of the Indian Air Force a riveting tale of true grit of Flt Lt Dilip Parulkar who inspired 2 more POW Pilots Flt Lt MS Grewal ‘Garry’ and Flt Lt Harish Sinhji 'Harry' to partake with him in the most outrageous prison break in the history of the Indian Defence Services.

It was Dilip’s spirit of adventure and thrill that drove him to declare to his CO 2 years before the war ‘We fight in deep enemy territory and one bullet can cripple your aircraft and if I ever become a POW I will escape…’

In the 1971 India Pakistan War, the Pakistanis took 12 IAF Pilots as POWs. Drawn from various squadrons of the IAF these brave pilots who were captured on separate days during the 13 days of conflict, spent 12 months as POWs. For the first nine months in a POW camp at Rawalpindi and post that - 3 months in a POW camp in Lyallpur, Pakistan.

From flying into Pakistan and successfully bombing targets followed by their subsequent crash and capture, these pilots of the IAF put their training to good use.

Their trials and tribulations through the initial hostile and to a limited extent torturous existence - to experiencing a typical Air force bonhomie in the camp, sometimes even with their enemy, while the politics of the creation of Bangladesh played across the three nations, forms the core of the story which culminates with the escape of the three brave heart pilots.

The brave heart IAF pilots escaped from the Provost Camp of the PAF located in Rawalpindi on the midnight of 13/14 August 1972 to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border traveling a total of 300 km by foot and bus. A journey full of ups and down culminating in their arrival at Torkham.

With meticulous planning over five schedules, the film recreates the original POW camp as per the mapped specifications provided by the IAF pilots on a set in Mumbai. The outdoor depicting the journey from the Provost Camp Rawalpindi to the Afghanistan was filmed on terrain that matched the original barren deserts of the Khyber – Pashtoon areas of the North West Frontier province of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The film also captures both the winter as well as the summer looks of the Air Force including the uniforms provided to the POWs.

This is the story of Inspiration Bravery… Drama… And above all a story of never giving up…
