The film features re-enactments of historic events, interviews with witnesses to these events, archival film footages, and culminates with scenes of Mennonite life in the former Soviet Union. These diverse elements are bound together by the question – can faith triumph in the face of great adversity?

Through the Red Gate - Our To See Entertainment Inc. - $12.00. Peter Bargen was just seven-years-old when he and his family narrowly escaped the Russian Gulag and almost certain death. Those relatives who remained in the USSR were not so fortunate. During Joseph Stalin's reign (1929 to 1953), between 45 and 60-million people, among them thousands of Mennonites, perised through enforced exile, execution, famine, and disease. Now, in a story that crosses continents and binds together generations, the discovery of a cache of rare and long-forgotten letters reveals the terrifying details of the fate of many families.
