*Leningrad, 1970. A group of young Jewish dissidents who were denied exit visas, attempt a daring plot to hijack an empty plane to escape the stifling oppressions of the Soviet regime and ultimately reach the “Promise Land” of Israel. Caught by the KGB only steps from boarding, they were sentenced to years in the gulag and two were sentenced to death. While the Soviet press writes “the criminals received their punishment”, tens of thousands of people in the free world demand “Let My People Go!” Director Anat Zalmanson-Kuznetsov and her mother Sylva, one of the “Refusnik” dissidents, retrace the group’s journey from a Soviet airport to a KGB prison. Cigarettes and vodka fuel interviews with the parents filled with intelligence and humor. Compelling archives, reenactments and interviews with KGB officers enhance this inspiring and important story of young Jews who imagined freedom and helped crack the “Iron Curtain.”
