Flight from the USSR
Author: Dato Turashvili

The novel is based on the most tragic and scandalous story of the 1980s Soviet Georgia. Seven young people hijacked an airplane to escape from the Soviet Union. The Soviet government condemned most of these young people to death for their naive even if dangerous attempt. The public opinion was split. A part of the public considered the youngsters to be just ordinary terrorists. The other part would argue that living under the Soviet regime was so unbearable that this could even justify the hijacking of a plane.
