Read the Omaha World Herald review!

Three men are being held captive by terrorists in Beirut. They exercise and they argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell. As time passes, resentments and recriminations give way to an acknowledgment of their characters, strengths and weaknesses. They learn that humor is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armor to protect themselves. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others.  William E.P. Davis directs Jonathan Purcell, Michael Arch, and Michael McCandless.
