Stephan, a gypsy, had lived with his family, including Alex, Bruno, Peter, and Jana, in Budapest. He was most likely a brother or cousin to young Jana, and as a street performer he would join his family members by playing the mandolin for tips from passersby. When Jana unwittingly stole a watch containing valuable intelligence from a double agent, her family became targets of the KGB, and in an effort to locate the watch, Bruno, Alex, Stephan, and Peter were arrested by Major Kossov and Inspector Messic and sent to Borza Prison. MacGyver helped the family to escape from prison, and after retrieving the watch he was able to evade authorities with help from Stephan and Jana who had borrowed a taxi from Tamasz with which to make their escape. In return for their help, MacGyver reluctantly acquiesced to Jana's pleas to help the family escape to America, and in three stolen Mini Coopers MacGyver led the police on a chase through Budapest and across the border into Austria where the family were to be processed for their trip to America.
