The story of a family of Quakers in Indiana in 1862. Their religous sect is strongly opposed to violence and war. It's not easy for them to meet the rules of their religion in everyday life but when Southern troops pass the area they are in real trouble. Should they fight, despite their peaceful attitide?Written by

A real picture in a film (see the technique in the opening); what a sympathetic and sweet way to see US Civil War. Unforgettable !!!
This is a genuine masterpiece of the great William Wyler. Perhaps the most careful director of all time Hollywood history. Only his hands could do so. An incomparable director. After 43 years still a freshly and delicious picture, a real portrait of sensibility !
