Additional Info

Two sophisticated New Yorkers with property to sell, find themselves stranded in Bird-in-Hand, PA., and their encounters with the local Amish provide a charming and eye-opening look into the 'plain' people of this rural enclave as "country mouse meets city mouse".The lush score includes the 50's chart-topper "Young and Foolish" among other musical gems.
