With the collapse of the Italian war effort in 1943, the SS herds 400 Allied POWs aboard a heavily-guarded freight train and embarks for an internment camp in Austria. Realizing that it's their only chance to escape, Colonel Joseph Ryan and a handful of officers manage to subdue their guards and hijack the train. Berrelling across Nazi-occupied Italy, Ryan and his men race for the Swiss border, as German troops, the Gestapo, and a dive-bombing fleet of Messerschmitts follow in deadly pursuit.
