Storyline

A wide-eyed sister missionary arrives in Austria to begin her 18-month-long mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite having to make a few cultural adjustments, Sister Taylor meets every challenge with optimism. Her enthusiasm to share the Gospel makes her indomitable, until she finds herself with an abrasive companion whom she doesn't understand and doesn't particularly like. This challenge, along with the ordinary vicissitudes of missionary life begin to wear on her, and thus in the process of sharing the Gospel, Sister Taylor finds herself gaining a better understanding of its key precepts: faith, repentance, forgiveness, and charity.

Superb Movie!
21 July 2008 | by bericjohnsonSee all my reviews

This movie was one of the best movies that I have seen. I really enjoyed the story that was presented. The actors were also first-rate and the cinematography was absolutely beautiful. Having lived in Europe I really enjoyed seeing areas that I had been to. I also served as a missionary in Europe so it was refreshing to see my experiences portrayed on the big-screen. Also, an excellent choice to focus on sister missionaries, as so many of the other missionary movies have been focused on elders. I am really impressed that the entire cast and crew could pull this off. Thumbs up to all associated with this excellent production. I think that this movie will be a big success, particularly in the LDS film market.
