Storyline

A beautiful, strong-willed woman, who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States 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 the first World War. 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.

Remarkable!

Great movie and great actor choices. I believe many of negative voters didn't even properly watched the movie just making comments full of hate giving the movie rating which it didn't deserve. Michiel Huisman did an excellent job and fulfilled the role. (As we expect from Daario:) )

Great tale, nice movie to spend time.
