THE JUMP

By Giedrė Žickytė

TOn 23rd November 1970, an American Coast Guard boat meets a Soviet fishing vessel. As representatives of the two superpowers hold talks, something inconceivable happens: a Soviet sailor jumps across ten feet of icy water landing on the deck of the American boat where he requests political asylum. This is the beginning of the incredible journey of Simas Kudirka.
