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

The Greatest Love Story of the Year!!

After reading the comments about this movie I can't help but agree with each and everyone of them. I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! I think that it shows that love can conquer over anything, especially with the help of God. Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Marisol Nichols made such a terrific team together in this movie. I wish like crazy that I taped all of it instead of the hour and 30 to 40 min. that I got, but I am glad that I got that much.It should definitely be aired again for everyone who didn't get to see it can and for those that got to see it can see it again. I think what makes this such a wonderful movie, is because it is based on a true story. And everyone wants to know that love like that is still possible. I think that she should be allowed to live here with her new family and I pray that she will be able to stay. I pray that everything will work out for them both.
