As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves. The Promise is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George.

Reviews:
"Undeniably effective, in its own blunt way, this deserves credit for shining light on a crime that's - unbelievably and controversially - still denied to this day."
- Empire Magazine
"The Promise is drenched in production value and replete with ravishing shots of sunrises and sunsets, but it's in the scenes of fleeing, of battle, and of horrendous loss that the film is at its most effective." Rogert Ebert.com
