Summary, etc.:
It's a famously private world, but this intimate portrait of the Amish community gives us a rare opportunity to peek behind their usually closed doors. Miriam and David are Old Order Amish and photography is not permitted under their strict rules, so the decision to invite cameras into their home is fraught with risk. As the film unfolds, we see why they feel their story must be told.
