This movie is the inspiring true-life drama of seventeen-year-old Niki Janus. After fleeing persecution in Greece, Niki and her family immigrate to West Virginia and begin living the American Dream. Among their friends is Big John Creed, a wise and helpful handyman. But Niki's friendship with him and her belief in freedom unwittingly bring the wrath of the Ku Klux Klan to her doorstep. Full of courage and passion, Niki challenges the powerful Klan and, at the same time, must overcome her own fears to help the townspeople survive a horrible flu epidemic.

The bomb
25 November 2001 | by kmcclanSee all my reviews

I am sorry that i can not write a long speach about this movie. ALl i can say is that i saw it once as a kid on the Disney Channel and it was really nice. It was an eye opener for me. I learned from this movie that it doesnt matter where someone is from if they are willing to be friendly and offer his or her help then that gesture should be enough. I hunted this movie down and now i am going to purchase it. I think that is is a must have movie.
