Baseball player Micah Matthias and his young son Bobby are fleeing a brutal media following the traumatic and unsolved murder of their wife and mother. They end up in the quaint Amish community of Sugarcreek, Ohio under a set of aliases and with a broken-down old truck. Three Amish sisters running an old farmhouse inn take them under their wings and employ Micah as a handyman. This sparks the suspicions of a Sugarcreek policewoman named Rachel Troyler, niece of the three who raised her after she was orphaned as a child. Will the truth interfere with love? Written by

...for the really excellent performance by Sarah Lancaster as Rachel. In the UK a lot of US made-for-TV movies are shown on our Channel 5 mid afternoon, and I often watch them while having a late lunch. So many have actors working on autopilot, but thought that the leads in this one displayed genuine warmth, especially Lancaster. The only thing that puzzled me about the film was the interaction between Amish and non-Amish characters. I would have thought the Amish would keep their distance a little more, but I have never visited Amish country, so have no first hand knowledge. Sometimes when I look at the synopses of the upcoming movies on my TV listings, I think - have I seen this before? because of the generic plots, but this movie has so many unusual elements that I will not quickly forget it!
