A story set against the Mountain Meadows Massacre, the film is based upon the tragedy which occurred in Utah in 1857. A group of settlers, traveling on wagons, was murdered by the native Mormons. All together, about 140 souls of men, women and children, were taken. Amidst this, two young lovers-to-be, one a Mormon and the other one of the doomed settlers from Arkansas, develop a relationship in an atmosphere of suspicion and rancor. Written by
The remains of the victims were buried in the days following the massacre. However, the graves were so shallow that within days, many of the bodies were dug up by animals. Two years after the massacre, remains were gathered up from the area by a US army corps and buried. A monument was built over the grave, with a cross. "Vengence is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord" was inscribed on the cross. See more »

Don't be fooled by the low ratings. I am sure they are all biased by people who are ashamed of their past and do not want the truth to be known. After doing some research on the internet, it appears that the movie is historically accurate. There is absolutely no doubt that this tragic incident took place. There is doubt as to who exactly was involved, but the movie does a very good job of presenting the historical facts as they are known today. The acting was superb! Amazing scenery, brilliant cast, beautiful horses, and one of the most tragic love stories displayed on film. (The love story was probably fictional, but heart-wrenching nonetheless.) The movie deserves an Oscar for sure! This is not a Mormon bashing movie. This is a tragic, true life story brought to life on film, and it's simply amazing! A film about the Crusades and murders committed by Christians in the name of God would be equally tragic. Anyway, don't let all the severely biased low ratings influence you. You do not want to miss this movie!
