Al Hartley adapts the story of Howard and Phyllis Rutledge, as recounted in their 1973 book titled IN THE PRESENCE OF MINE ENEMIES. Howard Rutledge was an Air Force pilot captured behind enemy lines in November 1965. For the following five years he was held prisoner in Hanoi, rediscovering his childhood faith while enduring torture and solitary confinement in rat-infested cell. Meanwhile, his wife leads the family at home, trusting God that her husband is still alive. An inspiring story that also details the loneliness and horrible conditions endured by POWs during the Vietnam War.
