In 1948, a group of  WWll Jewish American pilots answered a call for help from the newly founded    Israeli nation.  At a great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. This ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride.
