A Wing and a Prayer
This film tells the virtually unknown story of the Al Schwimmer-led secret, illegal operation to give the newborn Jewish state a chance to survive. Schwimmer's recruits thought they were done
fighting after WWII ended in 1945. Yet Schwimmer convinced them to put their lives and U.S. citizenships on the line to give the Jewish state a fighting chance in the 1948 Arab-Israel War by eluding the FBI and outsmarting the U.S. State Department.
