I am excited to see the story of two LDS missionaries who were kidnapped, held
for a time, then released by their drunken captor when he realized that the
Church doesn't pay ransoms. My favorite parts will be the liberal use of
emotional orchestra music and a dramatization of the conversations between the
guards and the missionaries. It will be a movie to rival Ephraim's Rescue,
The emotional things these young missionaries endured reminds one of Victor
Henkl's book, 'Mans Search for Meaning' Confirming that when
everything is forcefuy taken from one, by the tyranny of others, one basic
priciple cannot be taken -ones free agency to choose how they will live the
inner self. To live, endure and die.
This is gonna be bigger than World War Z!
I know...also saratov looks like it's spelled sayaatfv in the movie title
Great, really looking forward to a lot of people mispronouncing the word
This looks like it may be a good movie and a story worth telling, however, I
think LDS filmmakers need to realize these men look like they are 35 and to quit
casting them as 19-21 years of age. Just because this happened 15 years ago,
doesn't mean we need to cast men who were probably on their mission when it
great movie to watch just after your son get's his mission call to
Looks great, I would drive the 2 hrs to Columbus. Charleston WV or Cincy to see
this if it gets to theater there, but would be awesome if it played here in
As couple missionaries in Russia, we didn't worry about our safety, and
were blessed to spend two years there and return safely. However, we worried
over the young Elders, and did have one incident of a companionship being pepper
sprayed. Most of the Russians we met were wonderful, friendly, loving people.
There are bad people in every country around the earth, so we pray for the
safety of our missionaries, wherever they might be. I look forward to seeing
this movie; I hope it will be released to theaters in our area.
This sounds like a great movie. Is it going to be shown nationwide?
Please, more information and dates. I have followed this story, and really want
to see the movie. What courageous young men, and missionaries. So glad to hear
that they have moved on with their lives. Thanks for sharing your amazing story
Great trailer! When will this movie be coming out? Where? Cannot wait to see
it!! I served an LDS mission not far from where this movie took
place. Every day, now years later, I thank God that I was kept safe while out
serving. I am glad these missionaries survived this horrible experience and
lived to tell about it.
