Plot Overview

Jeff travels to Latin America to bring back the runaway daughter of a millionaire, and they board a plane back to Los Angeles with a disparate group of characters, including a very sick young boy who's about to undergo life-saving surgery and a pair of Communist sympathizers, who overtake the plane and demand that the Captain change course for the Communist-friendly San Cristobal.
