"Fighter" follows two friends, Jan Wiener, to whom the title refers, and Arnost Lustig, a writer - both in their seventies, and both exiles from Communist Czechoslovakia now living in America - as they retrace Wiener's escape from Prague after the Nazi takeover in the 1930s. Incorporating rare archival footage from Nazi and Communist propaganda films, the documentary focuses on the interaction between Wiener and Lustig as they retrace Wiener's steps.
