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

Goofs

Jason refers to his gunnery sergeant as sergeant. In the U.S. Marine Corps all sergeant ranks are addressed by the actual rank they are. Therefore, Jason should've referred to him as "gunnery sergeant" or "gunney." See more »

Quotes

Jason's Stepmom: You sleep good, OK?
Jason Johnson: It's my wedding night, I don't intend on getting any sleep.
