On November 4, 1979, militant Iranian activists storm the American embassy in Tehran and capture dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal. There's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped and a mid-level CIA agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Based on the declassified true story.
