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

Quotes

Meriam's Mother: You kissed him. In the desert.
Meriam: No, no I didn't!
Meriam's Mother: At the Tree of Life, you kissed him. The secret police saw your lips on his.
Meriam: The secret police? You had me followed!
Meriam's Mother: I don't need to have you followed, Meriam. Everyone knows who you ARE! Everyone but me. I trusted you! I should never have let you go to that mall, to those American movies...kissing in public! What do you do when no-one else can see?

Sweet love story
14 January 2004 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark, EU) – See all my reviews

This is a good love story with a happy ending and it's a true story, Marisol Nichols shines as Princess Meriam. If you like romance this one is an unmissable treat. Bahrainies it appears are not happy with this story, as it shows how closed and restricted even the most liberal gulf state is.
