Storyline

In Lima, Peru, a local 15-year-old boy tries to sneak into the US embassy at night by jumping from the top of the perimeter wall; a Marine guard challenges him, and the boy fires at the guard, who returns fire and kills him. A strident Peruvian anti-US group stirs up strong feelings and violent behavior against the US citizens. While Harm and Meg investigate, they uncover a number of entanglements and complications; they take part in a shootout and survive it, and they eventually figure out the truth. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

The scene in which the convoy of Suburbans is attacked is interspersed with footage from Clear and Present Danger (1994). The scene is now actually used as a training video in US government agencies. See more »

Goofs

Meg behaves in a most inappropriate and unprofessional manner when she interferes between the gunny and his Marines, especially in front of his men, and it's absurd for her to issue direct orders to him about his performance of his military duties, over which she does not have any lawful authority, and about which she does not know squat. Meg is supposed to have learned at least a little bit about the chain of command during her abbreviated orientation in Newport, Rhode Island, where she received her commission, and where she attended the Naval Justice School. In this instance the writers placed Meg in an unfavorable light and an untenable position. See more »
