A dramatisation of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France airliner en route from Tel Aviv to Paris – by Palestinian and German revolutionaries – and the subsequent rescue mission.
The focus is firmly on German pair Wilfried Böse (Daniel Brühl) and Brigitte Kuhlmann (Rosamund Pike), who hope to secure the freedom of prisoners held in Israel. There’s plenty of tension in the staging of the hijack, with the involvement of the Ugandan government and its ruler, Idi Amin (Nonso Anozie). A clash of plans between Israeli president Yitzhak Rabin (Lior Ashkenzai) and defence minister Shimon Peres (Eddie Marsan) adds further to the high stakes drama.
