On October 2, 2006, the community of Nickel Mines, PA was shaken to its core. Before taking his own life, a gunman took the lives of 5 Amish schoolchildren and injured 5 more—forever changing the community fabric of Nickel Mines. In the weeks and months following, the Amish community’s gracious response of love, forgiveness, and compassion left a deep impression on the world audience, and continues to do so even still. The Amish Project explores this true story through a fictional lens, as we hear the experiences of seven individuals involved in the events surrounding the tragedy. As stories unfold, we are inspired to consider what it means to show great love, deep grace, and true forgiveness.
