MacGyver and the Phoenix Foundation are trying to help an Indian lawyer who's going to court to prevent a power company from building just outside their sacred land. When he loses, MacGyver decides to have some research done via satellite. When the company's rep hears of this, he worries what they might find. In the meantime, the lawyer was about to throw in the towel when an old Indian talks to him. MacGyver goes to the reservation and discovers that the lawyer has taken arms and is doing what he has to to stop the company. Later, the rep shoots MacGyver in an attempt to frame the lawyer. While the rep chases the lawyer, MacGyver escapes and holes up in an old mine where the old man comes to him. He helps MacGyver and tries to show him what he showed the lawyer. MacGyver, upon seeing it, wonders the vision caused the lawyer to go on a rampage. He tells MacGyver, he probably misinterpreted what he showed him. And he gives MacGyver some information he needs.

The Trail of Tears was a series of forced removals of Native American nations from their ancestral homelands in the Southeastern United States to an area west of the Mississippi River that had been designated as Native Territory. The forced relocations were carried out by various government authorities following the passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. The relocated people suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route, and more than four thousand died before reaching their various destinations. The removal included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations. The phrase "Trail of Tears" originated from a description of the removal of the Cherokee Nation in 1838 See more
