216: The Promise

Published 5 July 2017 Hosted by Katie Molloy and Melissa Savage

Shot on a tiny budget, and working around still-sensitive governments, THE PROMISE brings the story of this little-discussed piece of history to audiences through a long sweeping romance about a young man yearning to be a doctor.
