Marcia Gay Harden,
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. Written by

Getting from one place to another quickly does not add time to our lives. What is important is being truly present wherever we are.
But don't you miss some of the gadgets, the technology?
For us it is a question of what we must forfeit to have them. If I accept the television, I must lose conversations with my children. If I accept the car, the airplane, must I also accept weapons of war? Where do you draw the line?

I considered the first two-thirds of the film fairly interesting, as I didn't know much about Amish customs. However, the resolution of who did the barn burnings (which I won't reveal here) struck me as very false, contrived, and unbelievable.
