Dr. Brian Schnitzer (Adam Arkin) was born and raised Jewish. He is a laid back sort whose faith takes a back seat to his love of the outdoors. His wife Tammie (Kathy Baker), adopted Judaism when she married Brian and is passionate about raising her children in strict accordance with her new faith. Her leaving Lutheranism created a deep rift between her and the grandparents who raised her. The Schnitzer's have two happy, healthy children, Isacc and Rachel, but Tammie is still haunted by the SIDS-related death of an older child, whose grave she and the children occasionally visit. Their ordeal begins shortly after Isacc's outdoor birthday party. Tammie and the kids are leaving the synagogue and find hateful fliers attached to windshields in the parking lot. Appalled, she shows them to Brian during a barbecue with close friends. He shrugs the matter off. Later, a Native American woman living with a white man awakens to find her house strewn with ugly graffiti. Tammie sees the damage and, against the wishes of the family involved, takes the matters to the police. When the local cops prove unsympathetic, she goes to a higher authority and then launches a community clean-up. This only further angers the white supremacist leader (Ed Begley, Jr.) who instructs his slimy henchman Roy Flanders (Brad Tatum) and his gang to step up their efforts to terrify all Jews and people of color into leaving their town. Soon services at both the synagogue and an African-American church find themselves terrorized by the red-necked thugs. But despite the many obstacles and increasing dangers and despite the fact that her brash resistance costs, Tammie her dearest friends, she remains committed to her cause and continues to inspire those most afflicted to stand tall in the face of hatred and bigotry.
