Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania. 2006. A thirty-year old man walked into a one-room Amish schoolhouse and opened fire, killing 5 girls and himself. In a decision that shocked the world, the Amish community later the same day forgave his crime and offered aid to his grieving widow. The Amish Project is a fictional exploration of the Nickel Mines schoolhouse shooting in an Amish community, and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake.
