Steven Hill (Adam Schiff) leaves the regular cast in this episode. He was the last remaining original cast member.
Contains many dramatized elements of the Charles Horman case of the period. He was an American journalist and documentary filmmaker killed during the CIA-supported 1973 Chilean coup led by General Augusto Pinochet. It was alleged that he was captured through CIA-supplied data; he was tortured and killed in the National Stadium in Santiago, Chile. Pinochet deposed the socialist president Salvador Allende.
Other parts of the episode dramatize an arrest similar to that of Pinochet, who was arrested under an international arrest warrant while on a visit to London on 10 October 1998 in connection with numerous human rights violations. This started a years-long battle, until his death, to come to justice for thousands of alleged violations - arrests, deaths, tortures and disappearances of countrymen and women during his 17-year term as President of Chile.
