Storyline

A wide-eyed sister missionary arrives in Austria to begin her 18-month-long mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite having to make a few cultural adjustments, Sister Taylor meets every challenge with optimism. Her enthusiasm to share the Gospel makes her indomitable, until she finds herself with an abrasive companion whom she doesn't understand and doesn't particularly like. This challenge, along with the ordinary vicissitudes of missionary life begin to wear on her, and thus in the process of sharing the Gospel, Sister Taylor finds herself gaining a better understanding of its key precepts: faith, repentance, forgiveness, and charity.

Utterly dreadful
11 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really did try to watch this to the end but I had to give up after an hour otherwise my shoe was going through the TV. The flimsy story us about a your American girl on missionary trip to Austria. At first she is partnered with a pleasant girl but things go downhill when the next companion is a bit of an ogre. Maybe this film is enjoyable to deeply religious people (see the other reviews) but to the rest is nothing less than propaganda. There are some really cringe worthy moments when the cast are attempting to convert the local populace. On the plus side the scenery was beautiful and the production reasonable. Unless you want to be brainwashed don't watch this film.
