I. Merritt, a man seeking to better understand his father and know what he endured during the war. In 1944, Jim Merritts B-24 bomber Liberty Belle was shot down over Yugoslavia. The entire crew survived the parachute trip to the ground, but once there they discovered that their survival was far from assured. With the help of Yugoslav partisans, the crew made it to safety in Italy, after some harrowing scrapes.

In 1986, J. I. Merritt journeyed with his father back to Yugoslavia, to meet the men who helped the crew survive and retrace the steps the men took in their escape to Allied territory. The story that Merritt tells combines his fathers wartime memories with his own discoveries of his heritage.
