The movie is the story told by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's, poem,"Evangeline", 27 September 1998
Author: james j. trahan ( from Camarillo, California

If the viewer has not yet read the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's, "Evangeline", it is strongly recommended they do. It is a love story told as few others have been told. The 1755 forced exile of the citizens of Arcadia in Nova Scotia by the British is imortalizes by Mr. Longfellow.
