An extraordinary view of the secret world of the Old Order Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. When two men radical Amish, Ephraim and Jesse Stoltzfus, begins to question some of the most fundamental aspects of Amish culture, they face excommunication from the church and the total rejection by their friends and family.

The Amish came to America 300 years ago and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where today about 30 000 workers Amish whose lives revolve around their church, family and land.

Just as a normal dress code strict, do not use cars, electricity and avoid modern technology. This program follows two men who let us into his private world, because despite his strong Christian faith began questioning the authority of the bishops of all the powerful and the rules. They are ultimately excommunicated for not following the strict Amish law, but that’s not the end of the story.
