7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will never forget when I saw this film on TV. I had just spent the last three summers as a missionary.I spent one summer in the Phillipines while they were under marshal law and it was normal to see military with M16s on the street. But unlike what the media LOVE to lie about the people loved us and were very happy to have us helping them. Another summer I went to Papua New Guinea . I stayed on a mountain and the people there were also very nice towards us and they loved our blue jeans and would trade you anything for them. I went through a group called Teen Missions. They have thousands of teens do missionary work all around the world. Great organization to work with. I was so moved by this film and it reminded me of why I did spend my summers helping others. I want to get this movie on DVD. If you want to see a film that has meaning than this one is one for you. Acting is not the best but the story makes up for that.
