The series explores the childhood and youth of the fictional character Indiana Jones and primarily stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier as the title character, with George Hall playing an elderly version of Jones for the bookends of most episodes, though Harrison Ford bookended one episode.
Indy is sent to a prison camp after being captured by the German army. That same day, he joins a band of inmates in a prison break.
