Tears of the Sun

Action-drama starring Bruce Willis (Die Hard series, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as a US Navy Seal who must extract a civilian doctor from Nigerian civil war.

A rescue operation in war-torn Nigeria turns into a fight for survival behind enemy lines when the US military declares the country a no-fly zone, leaving Lieutenant A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) stranded. He must find a way to complete his mission - bringing Dr. Lena Kendricks (Monica Bellucci, Matrix trilogy) home safely - as well as rescuing the 70 refugees in her care.
