Yoann Barbereau was a promising official at the head of the Alliance Fran aise in Irkutsk, in Siberia, when he was imprisoned on charges of a crime he had not committed. The FSB, heir to the KGB, created a set of false evidence to incriminate him and confine him to 15 years in a Siberian prison camp. After months of abuse and deception by the authorities, he decided to end the injustice on his own account: he would escape from Russia.

Escape from Siberia is the gripping tale of a flight from the depths of an icy continent, telling the epic story of how an innocent man escaped from the clutches of injustice. In a cinematic and action-packed account, Barbereau recounts his mind-boggling trek across a forest border guarded by ferocious dogs and gunmen to cross the border and reach Europe. This is an enthralling - and terrifying - account of a rogue state in action and how one man escaped the nightmare.
