Storyline

First Mission is a real life drama about the lives and work of a team of doctors on their remote outpost of International Frontline Doctors in South America. The team consists out of young Doctor Marina, the Logistics Manager Barry, Project Coordinator Thijs and local staff members Orlando and Diego; who all work under very difficult and dangerous circumstances. Marina, the lead character, finds out that on the torn continent of Latin-America, it is not about winning prizes, but about being part of the match it self, and that all that matters is to be able to make a difference, even if it is a small one.

Very good movie.
28 July 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. A woman loses her child and herself. She "flees" far away from "home" into helping out other people in very bad conditions. This movie depicts her story. Some scenes are shocking against the background of beautiful scenery. This is a contrast that creates a very interesting and enthralling atmosphere. There's great acting and true character development. I've read reviews that describe this movie as cliché. Suppose you're sensitive for being considered less sophisticated in exploring the wonder of life in cliché's. I that case you'd better spend your time in a different way. However, when you've had some true life experience, you'd be touched by her story and the other characters. You may recognize your own struggles in finding yourself and a home.
