Storyline

On September 11, 1857, a wagon train of 120 immigrants bound for California were slaughtered under a white flag by Utah Mormons in one of the worst massacres in American history. Through the actual testimony of a young girl who survived, interviews with descendants, and forensic investigations, this compelling film breaks through decades of coverup to expose a story kept out of the history books. Descendants of the massacre, haunted by the tragedy to this day, struggle to find forgiveness and healing. Written by Brian F. Patrick

thoughtful and intriguing, formulated by the complexities of Real Life
25 April 2004 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

First comes a compelling reenactment of the Mountain Meadows Massacre, followed by some political history and the reconciliation of ancestors. Watch closely and don't be afraid to look for meaning between the lines, especially during the second half. An excellent documentary; it seemed even better the next day when discussing its meaning. * * * * *
