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.
The crowd voices at market and other scenes were in Arabic language, while the formal language at that time was Turkish. See more »
You should'nt wander off.
I'm perfectly fine. Is that Mount Ararat where Noah landed?
Yes. We call it Agri Dagi.
Noah and the Great Flood. Adam and Eve. You know, it's also part of the Islamic culture.
Adam and Eve?
Hm-hm. Only in the islamic telling they weren't driven out of the garden. They were placed in different parts of the world, so they had to search to find each other.
Please stay close.

Melodrama and love in the middle of a Genocide !! In this case Armenian one...It is very disappointing to see atrocities accompanied by grand orchestra music and nice landscape ! This one as its former "The promise" both missed the point without any depth and real question (very superficial in essence...). One nice and handsome person can not clean the Turks from their guilt of genocide during WWI. However the landscape takes are very beautiful for the Ministry of Tourism in Ankara.
