About the DVD: Caught in the middle of a brutal civil war, six Liberian missionaries in Monrovia flee the widespread violence of their native country. Their destination: Freetown, Sierra Leone. With the help of local Church leader Phillip Abubakar (Henry Adofo), the missionaries make the difficult journey only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own. Based on true events, Freetown is a thrilling and inspiring story of hope and survival.
My review: Wow, this movie was really amazing to me! I thought that it was a really well done movie about a really amazing story. This story is about six missionaries serving in Liberia during a brutal civil war. One of the six missionaries was a member of the tribe that was being killed by the rebels. It quickly became apparent that they were going to have to leave the country and quickly. The only transportation being Brother Abubakar's small car.
I was amazed by the faith of these young men. It seemed as if everything that could go wrong was going wrong, but they still clung to their faith and they knew that Heavenly Father cared for his missionaries and would protect them and they would be able to get to Freetown. Their faith was not in vain, as they were able to get through each new obstacle, many times at the very last second. As I was watching it, I kept thinking, "Wow, there's no way I could have ridden in that tiny car with 6 other people for as long as they had to." Make time to watch this great movie, you won't be sad you did!
I was sent a copy of this DVD in exchange for an honest review.
