Storyline

Two Marines in a Humvee become lost and mistakenly drive from Kuwait into Iraq; then an Iraqi detail intercepts them, opens fire, kills one, and captures the other. The Iraqis charge the survivor with espionage; they announce their intent to try him and to allow US lawyers to defend him. The Iraqis conduct a rigged trial in a kangaroo court. However, Harm has a second duty: to spring the accused from prison (with help from an agent among the Iraqis, whose identity is unknown to Harm beforehand) and to take all three of them back into Kuwait and into friendly hands. After much fireworks Harm, Meg, and their client head back home. Written by DocRushing
