Dusk. A barn lot on an Amish farm in Ohio. Will's father doesn't recognize him at first --- it's been eight years --- so he holds a match up to Will's face to see him better. "I thought you were dead," Levi Mullet says flatly, then blows out the match and walks away. No hug. No party. This is not how it's supposed to be. Where's the fatted calf, the celebration?
Living in the Deep South, Will has raised a family of his own. But the heart of a prodigal is never far from home. For years he's worked --- the only ethic Will understands --- to overcome the unrelenting judgmentalism, the ban, of his father and the Old Order Amish, while a festering resentment takes its toll on his wife and children. Only when the life of Will's youngest son hangs in the balance does he begin to understand the truth --- that love is the proof of God, and forgiveness is the proof of love.
LEVI'S WILL is the haunting story of a fallen man seeking to reconcile the best of the old world with the lessons of the new, in the process building a bridge across three generations.
