Based on the amazing true story that inspired Elizabeth Elliot's best-seller, Through the Gates of Splendor, comes an incredible documentary film. When five missionary families travel to Ecuador, they find creative ways to connect with an isolated tribe, the Waodani. Although at first they find acceptance, eventually, some meet with hostility and ultimately, death.
In a testament to unsurpassed forgiveness, however, members of the slain missionaries' families return to the Amazonian basin and live among the tribe. Featuring first-hand accounts of this fascinating story, including recent tribe interviews, this powerful, award-winning documentary is one you will never forget.
Rated PG-13 for some violent content and thematic elements
