Amelia and her husband Levi leave on a very dangerous and terrifying journey to find gold and a better life. Amelia is very reluctant, but because she loves and honors her husband she leaves the only place where she feels safe. On the way, their wagon is attacked and Levi is killed. Amelia is left scared and alone. She uses her wits to survive, but knows there's a higher power that is helping her live.
This video had very little dialogue, but a lot of movement. You could read the emotions of this young wife as her face and actions showed her fear, courage and strength. I was surprised and thrilled how this heroine fought her way through these struggles and stayed strong as she looked to the source of her hope. This was a mysterious and suspenseful film that gave a hard look at the realities of prairie life in 1848.
