A strong-willed young woman, who, frustrated by on-going injustice at home, leaves the U.S. 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 World War I. 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.

I'll tell you the story of my journey. Where I went, how I got there, and what I saw along the way. I thought I was going to change the world. But, of course, it was the world that changed me.

The actors and director and script team done well. Unlikely below evil- minded Armenian friends' comments, the movie tells us much about historical realities. Besides, keep in mind that movies are just movies. We do not need to see art as a part of political conflicts. I liked the acting and screenplay. The script is satisfying.
