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
