This is non-fiction
29 September 2015 | by pvwebb-53634See all my reviews

Some of the reviews seem unaware that this is a true story based on real people. I went to school with one of the main characters and, the other lived in my home town. Thus, this Christian film is aware of the cultures foreign to Christianity exhibited in the film because it is a true story.

Note this story happened in the 70's, so for many it may seem out of place in today's culture.

This movie has a merger of three cultures, the United States, Amsterdam, and India. It also has a merger of non-Christian and Christian cultures, including the conflict between them.
