A prodigal son story set in a Canadian Amish Community during WW 1, this play explores the complexities of tradition and faith in an ever changing world. Yock Bauman can't comprehend how his strict father can stand idly by while war rages on in Europe. Shunning the pacifist beliefs of his community, Yock enlists in the military where he soon becomes a hero to the nation, but an outcast to his own. Having been powerfully affected by the horrors of battle, Yock returns to his father but soon finds he has lost more than he could have imagined.
