I loved this movie and would recommend it to you without reservation. It deals with the hardships that the Mormon pioneer handcart companies faced as they crossed the plains to the Salt Lake valley. It illustrates their faith and the miracles that occurred because of that faith. The stories were based on true events as recorded from the journals of those crossing. This is really a great film, with great acting. It's not your typical documentary film about these events; it really drew you into the story and made you feel as if you had been there.
