As she soldiers on, she is unaware that her dear husband and several other fellow American prisoners of war are still alive, wasting away in the clutches of a frozen Soviet gulag, desperately clinging to the hope that their country has not forgotten them. When the last of their hopes fade, their fortune changes when a reckless American reporter stumbles upon their trail. Now their fate falls into the hands of CIA analyst Thomas Hoffman, who discovers that the forgotten soldiers are dearer to him than he could have ever imagined. Time is running out and the United States is faced with the unimaginable risks of leaving their forgotten heroes in the hands of the Soviet Union or staging a daring rescue attempt.
