Mange tror spådommen fra Åpenbaringen viser veien til en fryktelig fremtid, eller at den presenterer fragmenter av historien, slik den har våknet til liv i vår tid. Tegnene, sier de troende, er overalt rundt oss: Terroristangrep, ekstremvær - listen er lang. Robert Thorn kjenner ingen slike dystre spådommer. Som amerikansk diplomat har han helt andre ting i tankene. Ikke minst nå som hans kone Kathryn har gjennomgått en vanskelig fødsel og ennå ikke fått vite at barnet døde. Knust av tapet tenker Thorn først og fremst likevel på Kathryn, som har vært gjennom dette to ganger tidligere. Nyheten om hennes tredje dødfødte barn vil knekke henne. Filmen fikk terningkast 3-5
