Contrary to reports, Angelina Jolie's directorial debut doesn't involve a rape victim falling in love with her captor, an insider tells

The erroneous story circulated earlier this week when Jolie, 35, was denied a filming permit in Bosnia because no screenplay was attached to the application, as required by law. Reports surfaced that the screenplay wasn't attached because it centered around a Serbian rapist and his Muslim victim. BBC News even reported that the Women Victims of War association said the movie was "misleading history."
