Landmark Theatres in
In an Indiana Jones meets Mother Teresa adventure, three middle-aged men – former
soldiers and modern-day knights - travel the world delivering life-saving humanitarian aid
directly into the hands of civilians and doctors; in some of the most dangerous yet beautiful
places on Earth, the front lines of war.
"An extremely inspiring film that is also hilarious, exciting and heart-wrenching. Not only are the three men unbelievably good willed, they are enjoyable characters filled with lovable quirks and wonderful stories to tell." - Christopher Campbell, Cinematical
The director / producer / cinematographer, Adrian Belic, and the star, Ed Artis, will be in
and press. This is a rare opportunity to meet these global adventurers in person.
