Storyline

Husband and wife doctors Paul and Kim Jordan need a drastic change. Distraught by the inexplicable death of their baby, Paul (C. Thomas Howell) convinces Kim to abandon their American lives and join a medical mission in Thailand. It seems to be just the distraction they need, until the day Paul is kidnapped by human traffickers who need a surgeon to operate on their wounded leader. Kim is left alone in a strange country, trying desperately to find her husband with no proof of what happened. While captive on the gangs' secluded island, Paul is caged with Malcolm Andrews (John Rhys-Davies), an Englishman being held for ransom. With nothing to do but talk, the two men quickly clash over philosophy, as Malcolm relies on a bold faith in God and Paul believes no god would allow these evils to happen in the world. Paul takes another hit when he finds his patient's condition much worse than he can handle on his own in such primitive conditions. With his value to the criminals plummeting, the ...

Acting skills needed for playing Kim Jordan
11 September 2012 | by artsarnoSee all my reviews

Anora Lyn playing Kim Jordan was not impressive. She did not convey the sense of passion and intimacy required in this role. As a doctor interacting with patients, a wife concerned about her husband and as a mother of a dead child, I did not feel the connections. There were many opportunities to immerse the viewer into the plot. The result was to defocus the viewer on the subplots of the religious elements and struggles of the captain as the main theme. This role requires the talent of a seasoned actress such as Meryl Streep. The complexity of the role was very challenging and perhaps better directing would have made a difference.
