"The patriot, the professor, the comic and the stripper, were fighting for what they believed in. Getting rich!"

Escape to Athena takes place during Nazi Germany. It follows the intriguing story of Major Otto Hecht, a German that's against Nazis who directs a World War II POW camp. The detainees, which include group of civilians and non-civilians of many different national, ethnic and political backgrounds, plan a getaway with a gathering of Greek partisans -- which are headed by Telly Savalas. It isn't so much that the Pows are disappointed with life behind cold metal bars - it's simply that they've been pressured into saving profitable craftsmanship treasures from the Nazis, and there's a probability of great financial benefit.
