The Jump

On 23rd November 1970, an American Coast Guard boat meets a Soviet fishing vessel. As representatives of the two superpowers hold talks, something inconceivable happens: a Soviet sailor jumps across ten feet of icy water landing on the deck of the American boat where he requests political asylum.
