The International Conference on Medicine for Peace has come together, Irena Gayevska, a world renown scientist in nuclear science and radiation, chairs the conference. Irena was once the love interest of a parliament member who wishes for her to be taken back with him to England. However this is not possible in any normal sense since the Russian government is watching Irenas every move. The Protectors are contracted to help Irena’s escape from the governments grasp. The escape is well planned and executed but now to fulfill the contract.
An episode about a talented scientist not allowed to leave the country by her government. I would imagine that this is closer to reality than most stories in The Protectors repertoire. This episode ends almost unexpectedly with an unfortunate outcome. I can appreciate this type of episode because it shows the inevitable fallibility of the Protectors. A good episode with a tough ending.
