Storyline

In a small Amish community, three barns are burnt down almost simultaneously. FBI agent Sally Russwell is sent in to investigate this possible hate crime. What she finds however is a community that little trust for outsiders or "The English" as they call them. However, in her investigations, Agent Russell makes friends with one entrepreneurial widow, Annie Beiler who has her own curiosity about this stranger. Together, Annie introduces Russell in-depth to this close knit community bearing many appealing attributes. However, as Sally's investigations continue, she discovers secrets that reveal uncomfortable truths about the religious community that are linked to the arson attacks.

Quotes

Annie Beiler: Heaping blame on yourself is the easy way to deal with a problem. It weighs you down, stops you in your path, is an excuse to do nothing... It will take more strength to accept your burden and walk on with it. Soon you find yourself in a different place -- stronger, wiser. And there your burden falls.

You call the Fire Department - I'll explain why we don't have a phone.
20 March 1999 | by (Palm Beach, FL) – See all my reviews

Let me put this delicately - this ain't exactly an ensemble piece. If you take away the meaningful dialogue between Lolita Davidovich and Patty Duke, you end up with about 15 minute of film left, including footage of 4 barns burning down.

And, perhaps it's due to my proximity to the Pennsylvania Amish area, but I really thought it was a tad condescending to the audience to have the Sheriff explain and pontificate on the Amish customs every time he and the FBI agent head out to investigate.
