This biopic chronicles the eight-years downed navy pilot Jim Stockdale spent in a North Vietnamese prison camp. Though he endured torture and sub-human living conditions, Stockdale remained loyal. Even when forced to betray his country on video-tape, Stockdale sent an encoded message by blinking his eyes to let the American authorities know that he had been tortured into a confession. Eventually Stockdale went on to become a US senator.
