In 1943, Nazi Germany has had enough of the troublesome Allies P.O.W.s who consistently attempt to escape only to recaptured at great time and expense. To prevent it from ever happening again; they have constructed the ultimate "escape proof" prison. But the Nazis failed to realize what would happen when they brought 250 of the most stubborn, incorrigible, and recalcitrant prisoners of war together.
Separately, they were the Allies' most brilliant, the most devious, and the most talented of escape artists ... together, they're the Nazi's worst nightmare as they mastermind and execute the greatest prison escape in history.
