The Way Back directed by Peter Weir (2010)

 The film, which is based on a memoir “The Long Walk” by the Polish writer Sławomir Rawicz, is about a group of prisoners who escape from a Soviet gulag in 1940 and trek thousands of miles to freedom, across the frozen steppes, across the Gobi Desert and finally across the Himalayas: The lucky ones make it to India.
