Fifty years ago, Peter Kantor made history escaping Communist Czechoslovakia by scuba-diving to freedom. He is the only known man to successfully escape this way during that time, leaving behind a wife and son who would flee after the Soviet Invasion of 1968 and rejoin him in the USA. Faced with oppression and unfathomable odds of survival, this is a one-in-a-million true story about love, determination, and the pursuit of freedom at any cost. We recently completed principal photography in Eastern Europe, and are now raising funds for post-production.
