Amish Grace is the powerful and moving film based on a true story about the aftermath that followed the 2006 schoolhouse shooting in the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania. The movie examines a mother’s personal journey in which she copes with the tragic loss of her daughter during the shooting and subsequent questioning of her faith. Based on the book Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy the film is now available on DVD and we talk to Catholic producer Larry Thompson.
