Why We Love It

Amid scenic backdrops of the Midwestern countryside, this dramatic mystery offers an intriguing glimpse into the world of the Amish. Patty Duke gives a stellar performance as an Amish widow, and it's interesting to see a young Jennifer Garner in a small supporting role before she struck it big in Hollywood. But beyond that, the film is an important lesson of compassion and acceptance for different beliefs and cultures.

Description

Share the excitement of a mystery solved and a friendship discovered in this compelling portrait of two very different women. FBI agent Sally Russell is sent to investigate an arson in a peaceful Amish community, but the residents won't help her, an outsider. Amish widow Annie Beiler, curious about the outside world, is willing to let Sally earn her trust. Can two women from different worlds overcome the barriers between them? If the arsonist is to be brought to justice, the answer must be yes. But getting there takes understanding and courage.
