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.

Just read the real reviews submitted by real critics. Not some biased blind ratings submitted by misguided patriot users and then you can be the judge yourself. The movie appears to be a retaliation to American movie "The Promise" starring Christian Bale which reflects some sad historical truths about the Armenian Genocide by the Ottomans in 1915.
