The Defection of Simas Kudirka

The Defection of Simas Kudirka

1978, True Life
In 1970, Russian radio operator Simas Kudirka (Alan Arkin) jumps aboard the deck of a U.S. Coast Guard ship in Martha's Vineyard and announces his intention to defect. But, because of a quirk in American law, the sympathetic Coast Guard officers are unable to offer him political asylum, and watch as Kudirka's fellow crew members forcibly return him to his ship. After being sentenced to ten years' hard labor in Russia, Kudirka makes a startling discovery that could change everything.
