Plot Summary

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 Ploy P.

Edit
Trivia The execution of John D. Lee was actually quite accurate. He was the only participant in the massacre that was ever tried, and after two trials, he was convicted. The army took him out to the massacre sight on March 23, 1877 (nearly twenty years after the event occurred), and then ordered a firing squad to execute him. His body was buried several miles away from the massacre site. See more »
Goofs Contrary to what is stated by "Brigham Young" in the film, Joseph Smith never claimed to be a "god on Earth", nor did Brigham Young, nor were they considered such by any of their followers. See more »
