When Bessie Faro's husband Johnny dies in a plane crash in Veracruz, Mexico, she finds that his air cargo business is deeply in the red.

As she begins systematically recovering her husband's money, she discovers that someone else has beat her to some of the accounts. Aided by Fergus Lamb, a chance acquaintance, she goes to Cairo to find some answers. But she is being followed. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie when the boy catches the Mazeroski home run that won the 1960 World Series, it was a Rawlings baseball. Rawlings did not begin supplying baseballs to the major leagues until around 1970. The home run ball would have been a Spalding baseball in 1960. See more »

Just Wonderful!
3 February 2004 | by (West Coast) – See all my reviews

Any film that can draw you in completely, as this movie did with me, succeeds. I missed the first ten minutes not knowing even the plot, and I was immediately taken in by Andie MacDowell's quest for answers regarding her husband.

I'm surprised by the many negative comments and reviews posted here. This was one of the few movies (like "Pyscho") that took me on sort of a ride that I didn't want to end. This movie was intelligent and I found it to be a great escape as Ruby travelled around the world. I'll certainly never visit Athens, Greece, or stand on top of one of the pyramids. But I felt like I was there. Whomever said this was boring must have had their eyes closed the entire time. I never realized how beautiful Andie MacDowell was until I saw this film or what a really good actress she was. Liam Neeson was a plus even if his role was rather short.

You can bet I'll be recommending this film to others as I do whenever I see a really good movie. Hope to see this released on DVD soon.
