(2020) (Jim Caviezel, Claudia Karvan) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A State Department employee travels to Iran in hopes of getting her kidnapped Christian blogger husband freed from Iran.
Doug Rawlins (JIM CAVIEZEL) works for a software company in the D.C. suburbs and is married to Liz (CLAUDIA KARVAN) who works at the U.S. State Department. Due to a past accident that claimed the life of their unborn child, Liz has abandoned all religious faith, unlike Doug who continues to be a Christian blogger on the side and accepts his Muslim coworker, Javid (ALY KASSEM), as his close friend. But when Javid's wife reports that their teenage daughter has disappeared, Liz calls 911 for them and soon the police discover fairly clear evidence that Javid has been covertly operating as a terrorist recruiter.
He disappears and despite warnings from Liz not to go, Doug travels to Cairo, Egypt where he's going to discuss his Christian beliefs in that very Muslim country. His statements don't go over very well with the locals and he subsequently is kidnapped by several terrorists led by Ramzi (HAL OZSAN). The latter simply wants Doug to renounce what he's said along with his Christian beliefs, something the American refuses to do, resulting in him being tortured. When word gets out that he managed to send an encrypted message back to Liz, he's moved from his current position to Iran.
Getting word of that, Liz travels there and meets foreign reporters Pierre (STELIO SAVANTE) and Maria (ISABELLE ADRIANI) who want to help, but Liz is now wary of everyone, although she's ultimately rescued from a bad situation by a small group of underground Christians. As she tries to figure out a way to help free Doug, he must contend with repeated efforts by the terrorists to make him abandon his faith, including trying him as a foreign spy, a charge that could lead to his execution if found guilty.
