Filmed in Thailand and based on a 1977 incident (see page 73), this riveting, atmospheric TV movie stars Michael Landon as an Australian journalist who evades capture by swimming the Mekong River underwater to rescue his Laotian lover (Moira Chen) from a brutal Pathet Lao secret police chief, played by J├╝rgen (Das Boot) Prochnow. Priscilla Presley appears in a small role.
