The Way Back
Their escape was just the beginning
Inspired by a book describing the events (and which perhaps never actually happened), this film takes 'road trip' movies to the extreme. A group of prisoners in a Russian gulag in Mongolia decide to escape and walk to freedom... all the way out of freezing Mongolia, across the Gobi desert and into India. They have assorted adventures and problems along the way, including letting a 14-year-old girl tag along.

Comments Inspirational story. Somewhat gruelling at times (man against the elements) so parental oversight recommended.
