SALT LAKE CITY — A moving story about love, loss and sacrifice. When three devout Amish families decided to change religions and become members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, their close-knit Amish community chose to shun them. That isolated them from family and friends and altered nearly every aspect of their lives. The three families struggled to adjust to their new reality without the support of all that was familiar to them.

Despite losing family, friends and businesses, they found peace as they worked to redefine themselves. It was their new-found faith and friends that gave them courage to endure the painful shunning and face the unknown. They learned the value of forgiveness and resiliency as they sought for ways to blend their Amish heritage with their new religion. This documentary takes an in-depth look at their faith journey.
