Synopsis: It's been ten years since the Black Plague ravaged the lands. A poor family sets out on a journey to find a better place to live. On a desolate mountain pass, the family is attacked by a pack of merciless killers. The only one to be spared is 19 year old Signe, who is taken hostage and brought back to camp.

Okay, okay, okay.

No problem, no problem.


Put those guns away.

No problems.

No problems.

Okay, good, good.


Anything you want.

What is it you want?

Please tell me.

You're right.

Have it.

Take it, take it.

It's okay, it's okay.

Okay, you want this?


Did you put

numbers on these?

Um, I kind of forgot.

These are going into

storage for a very long time.

We'll never remember

what's in them without a system.

You'll thank me later.

Who's here?

The Bacardis

are bringing us dinner.

Oh, good.

Maybe Steve brought that


Oh, all right.

Fine, no problem.

But you know what, we're

really excited for you guys.

Kind of jealous,

you know?

Wish we could just,

what, pick up,

go off on

a new adventure.

Then again,

you know how it is,

you got a house

and you got pets

and you got kids

and you got--

Well, tell us anyways

all about what you're gonna

be doing there.

Well, for the first

couple of months,

we'll be traveling

with a mobile clinic,

practicing basic healthcare,

disease prevention.

I'm gonna be part

of the surgical team,

and Kim will do all of the

general health screenings.

After that, we plan to

start a clinic of our own

in one of the locations.

It's gonna be awesome.

I'm so excited.


Hey, are

you okay, sweetie?

Yeah, you know,

there's just so much to do,

it's overwhelming.

I have something

for you.

I know how Paul feels about it,

but it's not for him.

It was the one

I used a lot last year

after my mom

passed away,

and I have marked

a lot of Scripture.

I just thought--

Thank you, Michelle.

It really was

comforting for me.

Honey, I can't find

the permanent markers.

On the table.

Thank you.

Should we be

going so soon?

It wasn't

a rash decision.

We thought this

thing through,

we're qualified,

and it's a good

thing to do.

Should we send

this to storage?

The Hope Center needs one.

They're sending someone

over to pick it up.

If we ever need another one,

we'll buy one.

Hey, you remember when

we first got married?

How we wanted

to be trailblazers?

We were gonna

travel the world,

but it wasn't a couple of years

and that was all forgotten.

We became clock-punchers.


Listen, tomorrow morning

we're gonna get on that plane

and we're gonna forget

about this place forever.

We're gonna start

a brand new life.

We're gonna travel.

We're gonna help people.

Everything's gonna be

new, including us.

What if it

doesn't work?

I love you.

Do you trust me?

I love you, too.


It's a book.

Everybody reads

books on planes.

Hey, as long as it

makes you happy.

Just don't go falling

down the rabbit hole.

Definitely some

French influence here.


It's not bad, eh?

Excuse me,

could you--

Could you

take our picture?

Take a picture for me?

Thank you.

- Really?

- Come on.

What do you think?

You see?

You're gonna fit right in.

What do you think?

Huh? No?

Come on!

I'd like one of these

for work, huh?

We should bring one.

When we open up

our first clinic,

it'll be like the ambulance.

We'll have

a bed on the back.

That's excellent.

Are you glad we came?

Yes, this is paradise.

This is it.

Wow, now we know

why they need help.

Do I do the bowing

thing first, or do they?

Just bow to everybody

and you'll be covered.

Doctors Jordan!

Dr. Kiet,

nice to meet you.

You guys ready to start?

We have a very

busy day today.

I think so.

Take your bags

in the back;

there's a room with

your name on it.

And then a quick tour.

Come on.

- You ready for this?

- Yeah, let's do it.


everyone starts here.

Then either to emergency,

the ward, or to surgery.

Paul, I'm gonna

need your help here!

Test the vitals.

Just relax.

Just relax. Just relax.

Just relax.

Do you speak English?

What happened?




This is not paradise.

I can't believe some of this

equipment is older than we are.

Yeah, it's amazing what

they have to work with.


What's the matter?

We should find Dr. Kiet.

No, he left to fill

up the water tanks.

What's the matter?

Please, help my--

she-- her baby.

Your mother?

Please, please

help my mother.

Okay, show me where

she's at, okay?

Look, I'm sure this is

nothing I can't handle.

I'm gonna go

check it out.

We don't open for

Do you need me?

No, Dr. Kiet

needs you, okay?

Tell him I'll

be right back.

You should take someone with

you, a translator, Paul. Paul?

Wait! Hey!

Hey, hey!

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Wait! Hey!

Can you tell--can

you tell me more?

Where are we going?


You've gotta

be kidding me.

Where'd he go?



I take it neither

of you are pregnant.


Okay look, there must be

some kind of mistake.

I'm an American, okay?

If you want some money or--

I have nothing on me.

If you want--if you want

drugs, they're at the clinic.

I'm in a marriage. it's--

Any word from him?

He's not answering

his phone.

If it was complicated, he

would have sent for an assist.

If it wasn't,

he'd be back by now.

You don't think

he should have gone?

I understand he wants

to help people.

But I think if he

wants to help people,

he should do it here

with our team.

Maybe the boy lives

farther than he indicated.

We should get

back to work.

Your husband

will show up.

Most likely he helped

the one lady

and now her house has turned

into his own personal hospital.
