The Voice of the Martyrs Presents A Stephen Yake Production
Abbey, a typical American teenager from Nashville, Tennessee, enjoys being a Christian, going to church, and having fun with her friends. She has never heard about Christians suffering for their faith in Christ. But when she travels to China for the first time with her dad, a photojournalist, Abbey quickly becomes caught up in a plot that involves her new Christian friends, a mysterious secret agent, “illegal” Bibles, and the police! Desperate to undo the mess she inadvertently causes, Abbey finds herself on a daring mission and in the process mourns her own simplistic understanding. She vows to carry the message of the persecuted church to Christians back in America.
Set in modern-day Beijing and filmed in location in China and Taiwan with scenes that include the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and The Great Wall, this drama reveals not only the harsh realities of being a Christian in a restricted nation such as China, but also the all-too-common ignorance of Christians in the free world.

This film is entertaining yet instructive and appropriate for all but the youngest. It instructs how persecution is present in other countries and how Christians are willing to suffer as we all should be.

Because we live in a country where we have freedom of speech and religion, it takes a movie like this to remind us that millions of other people in our world do not.

Acting was OK. But this short does remind us how hard it can be in other countries in being a Christian. Easy to take it for granted in United States. Nice little film. Film would be of greater interest to to children & younger teens than adults but good reminder for adults in watching it.

It really lets you thinking and appreciating the opportunity to live in a free society where we can proclaim Jesus Christ. Great for youth!!

Very good movie for any age. We're soo full here in America. Great for encouragement to become selfless in this temporary life
