Elias effectively raises to consciousness our deepest fear - the self-destruction of the species - and our terror at military power. Instead of Apocalypse, he proposes ecstasy. Instead of missiles in their silos.... "Make love, not war." The deeply human and sensual depiction of sexuality is a perfect counterpoint, an antidote, to the cold diction of nuclear discourse.

The Mennonite village sitting on the Manitoba North Dakota border seems quiet and peaceful, its inhabitants devout and hard-working. It is the 1960's when the westernf world is facing its worst fears in the cold war with the Soviet Union. Missiles are being installed and all are on alert for attack. We are invited into the lives and secret thoughts of the villagers and discover that all is not as serene as it would seem. In the space of an afternoon all that serenity is shattered. Reality is that this village is a microcosm of the big bad world - lust, love, hate, innocence, anger, viciousness are rampant. Well paced and well plotted. Keeps you wanting to race forward to see if your hopes are fulfilled.
