Spoken Memoir

The Escape

A story of disillusionment and defiance

A young man caught in a land he doesn't understand. Eighteen years old with no direction or inspiration, he joins the Navy and his first tour of duty is in the Greek countryside near a small fishing village.  What at first appears an idyllic setting soon reveals itself as a sinister landscape ruled by a military dictatorship. He has only one choice. Fight to be free!
