Synopsis

Late October, 1959. A confused, nervous American animator is being transported deep behind the Iron Curtain on a Soviet-built plane. As Gene Deitch observes the checkerboard green farm fields below turn into a brown hectic patternless mess he knows he has crossed the border into the Soviet Union. Was this all a setup? But why him - a director of children’s cartoons? This is the true story of the only free American living in communist Czechoslovakia.
