A young Amish boy is sole witness to a murder; policeman John Book goes into hiding in Amish country to protect him until the trial.
The script ran the rounds of all the major studios, who all turned it down, until Paramount Pictures finally expressed some interest.
Your hole, it is better now?
John Book: Yeah, it's pretty much healed.
Daniel Hochleitner: Good. Then you can go home.
When Rachel fetches the gun from the cupboard to hand it to Book, a number of pantry items are visible that no self-respecting Amish would have in their cupboard (Campbell's soup cans, packages of Jell-O and other boxed products).
The closing shot of John Book, driving away in his car passing Daniel provides an initial backdrop for the end credits.
