(mbc.net) Rebels have overthrown Nigeria's current leadership and begun massacring their opponents.  Bruce Willis portrays Lieutenant A.K. Waters, a soldier sent to rescue American citizens caught in the crossfire.

Locating Lena Kendricks (Monica Bellucci) is Waters' top priority, a doctor tending to those injured in the melee.  Kendricks refuses to vacate without her patients in tow however, a difficult task considering the helicopter's minute size.  Waters must also complete his second objective: rescuing a priest and nun from a church mission under siege.

Tears of the Sun was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.  It was a commercial success, earning $85 million at the end of its theatrical run.
