Description
In Peter Weir's thriller Witness, Samuel (Lukas Haas), a young Amish boy, witnesses a murder in the restroom of a Philadelphia bus station. Harrison Ford stars as John Book, the police detective investigating the murder. When Book discovers that the crime was part of a conspiracy involving several officials in his department, he flees Philadelphia to the Amish community where Samuel lives with his widowed mother, Rachel (Kelly McGillis). Slowly assimilating himself into the Amish community, Book eventually finds himself falling in love with Rachel in the midst of his investigation. Eventually, the corrupt police track Book down, and he is forced to confront them, while also trying to protect Rachel and Samuel. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

display_descriptionShortly after the death of her husband, Amish woman Rachel Lapp takes her son Samuel on a trip to Philadelphia. While in the train station washroom, Samuel sees two men savagely murder a third. Philadelphia detective John Book discovers that people within the police force were involved, and is assigned to escort Rachel and Samuel back home, protecting the boy until the trial. Book blends in with the Amish community, but the corrupt cops Book has exposed are determined to keep their secret, and they come looking for Samuel--to silence him for good.
