Storyline

Discomfort strikes an Amish farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania when a dead baby is found. When the mother is discovered and confirmed to be eighteen-year old, unmarried Katie Fitch, she is arrested and sent to trial for murder. The detectives and police all believe that she smothered the baby. City defense attorney, Ellie Harris takes on the task of defending the Amish girl. As Katie denies that she gave birth to the baby and Ellie tries to get through to her client, the plot of the story just keeps rising and spiraling with twists and shocking new discoveries. Is Katie Fitch really guilty of murdering her newborn child? Will her Amish church exclude or still accept her into the community? Written by Kellye M. Boyd

Great movie
22 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It had you guessing the whole time. Had some really great actors to and I think it told a good lesson. If you like movies that keep twisting then this movie is one you'll want to see. It also showed how two different types of people can try to live in each others world. Truly an amazing movie. Also it has a valuable lesson in it. Plain Truth has anything but the plain truth in it. This movie keeps you guessing. A true mystery where things aren't exactly what they seem. Also a good movie for mothers and daughter to watch together because it also shows a strong bond between them. It shows a lot about family dynamics too and how family and culture can really shape someones life.
