This movie does a good job of giving insights into the reaction of the missionaries. It does this by using flashbacks, missionary teaching and in one case a dream. Some of this is confusing, but it does create a whole that is well done. The biggest tension is presented when the missionaries must decide whether to make an escape attempt, confronting their captors, or wait things out.
I enjoyed this movie. Miranda who is preparing for a mission watched it with us, and seemed to also enjoy it. It has a very dramatic ending which is very teary. With a child on a mission, and another a couple months from leaving, I felt for the missionary families.
