cast update and movie detail
29 October 2001 | by butterflysugarbabySee all my reviews

This movie is supposed to be a true story about a post-grad(?) lay missionary who lived and worked in an orphanage in war-torn Nicaragua.

PATRICK CASSIDY played a small role as Jean Donovan's reluctant and fearful boyfriend in this movie.
