Beyond the call information:

From the brothers who brought you the Academy Award nominated film GENGHIS BLUES, comes the next great adventure... BEYOND THE CALL

In an Indiana Jones meets Mother Teresa adventure, three eccentric middle-aged men - former soldiers and modern-day knights - travel the world delivering life-saving humanitarian aid directly into the hands of civilians and doctors. Ed Artis, James Laws and Walt Ratterman inspire through deeds not words, in some of the most dangerous yet beautiful places on Earth, the front lines of war.
