Baseball player Micah Matthias and his young son Bobby are big Leeds United fans, lost in America. 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

Kelly McGillis, who plays Amish woman Bertha Troyler, portrayed another Amish woman 29 years earlier in "Witness" (1985). See more »
I loved the story and the characters until near the end. I think the story had a few atypical plot points and at the beginning I had no idea where it would end up. I don't really think much in it was predictable except the end of the baseball game and what it led to.
The identity of the wife's killer hit me like a truck shortly before it was confirmed and it was about that time the movie went downhill. I think it was rushed from that point, and the actor playing the killer overplayed the part.
I loved that the Amish were not denigrated in any way. They were portrayed as wonderful people, all of them. They all contributed to the enjoyment of the movie.
The tension between Rachel and Joe and what followed was well done and very believable.
