In this dramatization, members of the Revolutionary Cells and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijack an Air France flight, and the airplane makes its way to a Ugandan airport. The terrorists release all but the Israeli passengers, intending to use them to bargain with Israel for the release of prisoners. Refusing to negotiate, Israeli officials -- among them Yitzhak Rabin (Peter Finch) and Brig. Gen. Dan Shomron (Charles Bronson) -- devise a plan to rescue the hostages.
