The movie Midnight Express was so successful that TV had to knock it off. This time the setting is Mexico, and it's Timothy Bottoms who is stuck away in a crowded, filthy jail. Kay Lenz drops by for a visit, they fall in love, and of course a novel escape plan hatches. The way out is suspenseful, if predictable.
