Revolutionäre Zellen terrorist Wilfried Böse and his cohorts from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijack an Air France flight on a stopover in Athens and force it to fly to Entebbe, Uganda, via Libya. After releasing the non-Jewish passengers, the terrorists ransom the remaining Jewish hostages for the release of political prisoners held by Israel. Israeli commandos launch a daring rescue attempt in this drama based on real-life events from 1976.
