The Jump


Thanksgiving Day, 1970. A US patrol boat meets a Soviet fishing vessel in the Atlantic Ocean. A Soviet sailor jumps across the water on to the American boat in a frantic bid for freedom. To his horror, and to the outcry of the world media, the Americans return him to the Soviets. Through rare archival footage and a dramatic, first-person re-enactment by the would-be defector, 86-year-old Simas Kudirka, we relive one of the most unpredictable Cold War mix-ups.
