Storyline

MacGyver has some very important information that enemy agents want. They know that MacGyver hid it and that he will never voluntarily tell them where it is. So, they inject him with a narcotic drug that will kill him in six hours unless he can steal the anecdote before his time runs out. Written by Lindsay Duke
