Mac happily volunteers for a Phoenix foundation mission: helping protect the golden eagle. The pair he is sent to check on lives on a steep mountain; during his first attempt to approach it by para-glider, they get attacked in flight by a rich poacher and his criminal accomplices in a helicopter, who shoot the male by gun, far out of reach, and wound the female by crossbow before taking off; Mac descends to get the female, nearby, and teams up there with bright ten year-old Darin Cooper, who learned a lot about eagles from his late granddad. They bring the wounded eagle to the cabin where Darin's over-protective single mother Susan brought him in an attempt to mend her bond with the growing boy, who needs more space to become a man and instantly takes to understanding father figure Mac, nurse it and realize the male and probable chicks must be found, raising them is not a single parent job with eagles. With improvised extra climbing gear Mac risks his life dangling on and up the mountain, but ultimately gets the male down, only to find the fiends, who fear a witness, have taken hold of the Coopers. Macgiverisms win the battle one to two. Last task is to follow the healed male to the nest and get the chicks, who need human nursing after the female sadly dies, and they're in an even less accessible spot...- Written by KGF Vissers
