Profiles the Hutterite communities that are spread across the US-Canadian border. They have rigidly maintained their traditions, dress and German language since arriving 100 years ago. Recently they have been shaken by a wave of desertions as some of the Hutterites have become born-again Christians. The programme explores the effects of this division on a small community in Flat Willow, Montana.
