Storyline

Based on a true story, American Marine Jason Johnson (Goselaar) is sent on assignment to the Emirate of Bahrain. While there, he meets and falls in love with a spirited, lovely young woman, Meriam (Nichols), without realizing she is really a member of the Bahraini Royal Family. Meriam, who does not wish to consent to an arranged marriage, knows her love affair with Jason is dangerous, as he is a Mormon Christian and she a Muslim. Her parents would never consent to their match, and so Meriam and Jason race against time to escape Bahrain and make it to the United States, where they can marry. If Meriam is sent back, however, her life may be in jeopardy. Written by Nichol

my opinion and what i think should happen.
18 February 2001 | by (pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I think the movie was great. I've heard more about this true story on Oprah; My only comment from the information that i have received, is this woman should be given the right to stay in this country with her new family. I wish them the best and good luck.
