Storyline

A beautiful, strong-willed woman, who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire - a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission's founder tested when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must make a decision if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself. Written by Anonymous

Good script and a mirror to historical realities
7 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

The actors and director and script team done well. Unlikely below evil- minded Armenian friends' comments, the movie tells us much about historical realities. Besides, keep in mind that movies are just movies. We do not need to see art as a part of political conflicts. I liked the acting and screenplay. The script is satisfying.
