Episodes

    • 1. From Hollywood to Hell
    • A gym friend offers Erik Aude a free trip to Turkey and $800 to bring back leather goods. When the trip goes smoothly, Erik takes a similar trip to Pakistan. But this time, authorities discover opium in the lining of Erik’s suitcase — a crime he didn’t know he was committing. With nothing but his pride and innocence to hold on to, Erik endures months of torture and hostile inmates at Pakistan’s largest prison, refusing to plead guilty. Erik describes his reaction to the brutal conditions and, in a Locked Up Abroad first, he even re-enacts the entire emotional saga himself.

    • 2. The Juggler Smuggler
    • Mark Greening has the easy life as a magician in Bali … until he finds out he's going to be a dad. Needing fast cash for his new responsibilities, he smuggles a kilo of hash from Nepal inside pellets he actually swallows — which proves to be an easy act for this magician to perfect. He's saved more than $80,000 through his scheme and decides to make another (doomed) trip to Nepal. A bad bout of diahhrea means problems swallowing the pellets. He breaks the golden rule to never body-pack hash, and enhanced airport security for the soccer World Cup in Tokyo during a stop home gets him busted.

    • 10. Son of Saddam
    • Iraqi soldier Latif Yahia is fighting in the Iran-Iraq War when he is summoned to the Palace. Here, Latif claims Saddam Hussein's eldest son Uday demanded Latif become his body double. Latif is almost an exact physical match for Uday, virtually his twin. He doesn't want the role, but Uday has him thrown in prison until Latif accepts he has no choice but to do as he is commanded. He severs all ties with family, friends and his previous identity, and is trained to walk, talk, and behave exactly like his new master. While the position has its perks, Latif has to witness Uday's evil behavior--rape, murder, torture--on a continual basis. Although Latif narrowly survives several assassination attempts, it is only a matter of time before the devil turns on his 'brother,' and Latif has to choose between death or escape...
