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

Who knew TV movies could be so wonderful?
20 February 2001 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

After seeing this movie, I absolutely love it, and I am now a new fan of Marisol Nichols and always will be a fan of Mark-Paul Gosselaar. They both do excellent jobs portraying their characters. As Mariem Al-Khalifa, Marisol does a wonderful job capturing the pain and sorrow of going through such an event. Mark-Paul does a remarkable job as the wonderful boyfriend/marine Jason Johnson. I love this movie! If I could, I would definitely watch it again. Those of you that missed it, I'm sorry.
