The Story of Katie Lapp, past present and future...
In this heartfelt treatment of Beverly Lewis ‘The Shunning’ vistas of the Amish country and community located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania make a contrasting backdrop with the inner turmoil of a 20 year old woman torn between her need find her true self and leave her family and friends, and her love and loyalty toward the Amish religious community of her cultural tradition.
Katie Lapp (Danielle Panabaker) has always struggled with the rules that define her sheltered Amish community; for one thing she has a talent and a love of the music and singing forbidden in her Plain Pennsylvania culture. On the eve of her arranged marriage, a wealthy outsider (Sherry Stringfield) arrives and begins asking questions about Katie’s family.
The secret truth of Katie’s past is revealed: Katie is adopted, and not of Amish origin at all. Katie begins to wonder about her own origins. Despite her love and loyalty of her adopted Amish traditions, she needs to know what connection this stranger has to her life… and how will the unravelling secrets challenge Katie’s faith?
