An American soldier, Devon, falls in love with his innocently charming Arabic interpreter, Marwa, in Iraq. He helps Marwa resist the force of her father, Salam, and survive the atrocities and cruelties of war. In the last moments before they're to meet again, their love is put to the test, as are their ideals.
"Marwa is not only important to me on a personal front because of my roots and because of the classic story of love and sacrifice it depicts. It is a big responsibility to bring justice to the true story of two individuals. It is also a hope to inspire the beauty of cross-cultural cooperation and amalgamation in today’s world…especially cross-religious tolerance."
