Storyline

Just when Mac has finished soccer-coaching the boys of a North African Catholic orphanage, Brian Ashford's sisters Sara convinces him to break her innocently framed brother Brian, a medical missionary, from prison. So Mac lightly assaults two cops who beat up an old peddler, and is told by the warden ('commandant') Western privilege is no longer his share, nothing for nothing. Mac befriends old Frenchman Francois Villars, who helps him find out trustee Khan is the key man in luxury who runs a PCP drugs lab, with whom he ingratiates himself thanks to his technical fixing skills, and that Brian is in the political ward. The warden has every room wired, including where Mac's visiting 'wife' Ashley comes arrange transport to wait outside for the boys' escape, but Mac knew about the wiring, so his escape plan is double-bottomed. However there are more two-faced hidden agendas, in- and outside... Written by KGF Vissers

MacGyver: Is ol' Brian a Russian, too?
Sara Ashford: No, he's a crooked arms dealer who stole the weapons from me to sell on the black market. But he ended up in Hirosh prison before delivery.
MacGyver: Yeah, so the deal was I get him out and you get the guns back, right?
Brian Ashford: Look, must we have all these little maudlin revelations? Just kill him and get it over with before the Jean Damme show up.
