The story of a family of Quakers in Indiana in 1862. Their religious sect is strongly opposed to violence and war. It's not easy for them to meet the rules of their religion in everyday life but when Southern troops pass the area they are in real trouble. Should they fight, despite their peaceful attitude?
About 30 minutes into the film, the Quaker family goes to a fun-fair. In the background some clubs are being juggled. In the last scene at the fun-fair, a man juggles rings briefly.
