The Amish: Shunned follows seven former members of the Amish community as they reflect on their decisions to leave one of the most closed and tightly-knit communities in the United States. Estranged from family, the ex-Amish find themselves struggling to understand and make their way in modern America. Interwoven through the stories are the voices of Amish men and women who remain staunchly loyal to their traditions and faith.

        Comments about PBS American Experience: The Amish: Shunned DVD:

        I grew up as a Jehovah's Witness, left the faith, and have been shunned three times. This account, though through the Amish, is a very accurate telling of the impact on shunning on all sides ... with special emphasis on the people that leave. There is not one stroke of bitterness throughout, which I think is important. Rather, it exposes the harsh reality, brokenness, and needless tragic end that many families suffer because of this practice. This would be an important film both in terms of understanding the affects of shunning, and also to help those that have been shunned to recover from their loss.
