I rented this movie this weekend, "As far as my feet will carry me".

It is the true story of a German POW who walked nearly 8000 miles from Siberia to freedom over three years from a Russian POW camp.

The Russians kept the German POWs in this coal mines and worked them to death. They never saw the sun again, not in this life.

This German film tells the true story of Clemens Forell, a man who escaped a Soviet prison and traveled more than 8,000 miles to return to his family. In 1944, Forell was sent to fight for his native Germany in the final days of World War II. But his allegiance lands him in a prison in Siberia, and his escape forces him face dangers such as his brutal captors, the harsh Soviet winter, and wolves.

You will want to get a copy for yourself or rent one as soon as possible.
