Escape From Iran: The Inside Story

58 minutes, 1981

When the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was overrun in 1979, a small group of Americans managed to flee to the Canadian Embassy where they were given refuge. This exciting documentary is an account of their experiences as "guests" of the Canadians, and of the carefully orchestrated planning that went into their eventual escape from Iran.
