Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Donald Kraybill, Steven Nolt, and David Weaver-Zercher. On October 2, 2006 the peaceful Amish community of Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania was forever changed when a gunman senselessly took the lives of five girls in a schoolhouse shooting before taking his own life. What transpires afterwards takes the community by storm when the media descends on the town and criticizes its Amish leaders for their notion of unconditional forgiveness of the shooter and their outreach of support to his widow, Amy Roberts. Devastated by her daughter's death, Ida Graber finds herself struggling with her community's belief of the transcending power of forgiveness. Deeply conflicted and unable to forgive the gunman and his family, Ida is tempted to leave the only life she's ever known before re-embracing her faith.
