Storyline

First Mission is a real life drama about the lives and work of a team of doctors on their remote outpost of International Frontline Doctors in South America. The team consists out of young Doctor Marina, the Logistics Manager Barry, Project Coordinator Thijs and local staff members Orlando and Diego; who all work under very difficult and dangerous circumstances. Marina, the lead character, finds out that on the torn continent of Latin-America, it is not about winning prizes, but about being part of the match it self, and that all that matters is to be able to make a difference, even if it is a small one.

Amazing, Real, Powerful, Emotional.
28 November 2010 | by antoniadesnektariosSee all my reviews

From the actors perspective: simply amazing. Each and every actor performs in a captivating way, able to transfer to us the exact emotions that his/her character is in.

About the movie's subject depicted: a real scenario happening every day in the midst of our world's most abandoned places where guerrilla wars rage relentlessly and Medicine Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) try their best with minimal equipment and maximum courage. Powerful real life drama that comes down with the lead character's (Marina's) personal drama and explodes.

If you like great performances, vivid real life scenarios and powerful emotions you are going to love this film.
