If tragedy struck close to your home, how would you react?

Would you be able to forgive the person who MURDERED someone very dear to you? Well, Kimberly Williams-Paisley‘s character in Lifetime’s new movie, Amish Grace, can’t manage to forgive the family of the man who took her daughter’s life. But that’s not all! In this emotional movie, Ida’s internal struggles don’t match the values set upon her by her Amish community. They think forgiveness is the only way to mend a broken heart and move on. Do you agree with this belief?

If Ida doesn’t accept her community’s values, she will be banished — sent away from her family and friends — forever. Most people couldn’t even imagine going through a situation like this, but this film does make you think … what if this happened to me?

I know acceptance isn’t something I think I could handle, but, this story shows you that it is possible to do the unthinkable: forgive a muderer.

Amish Grace premieres at 8 p.m. tonight on Lifetime. It’s definitely a film you can’t miss!
