This documentary shares a lot of personal accounts of life in the Amish community and what it's like to be pulled in different directions. I feel bad for those who end up being shunned forever from their communities and families. I can't imagine how agonizing it is to make the choice to leave the Amish.

Just to clarify comments about Amish vs Mennonite vs Quaker in a previous review - Quakerism (Society of Friends) is unrelated to the Amish and Mennonite religions. As I understand it, Amish and Mennonite religions trace their histories back to the Anabaptist movement so they do share some similarities.
