Freedoms Fury tells the heroic story of the democratic Hungarian uprising of 1956 through the lens of the epic Olympic water polo showdown between Hungary and the Soviet Union. The match, which took place less than a month after the Soviets crushed the rebellion in Budapest, is remembered as the bloodiest event in Olympic history. Known as the Blood in the Water Match," the confrontation transcended sport to become an enduring symbol of freedom to oppressed people around the world. Narrated by Olympic gold medalist Mark Spitz, the film features remarkable footage of the thirteen surviving members of the Soviet and Hungarian water polo teams.
