Synopsis

After the martyrdom of Joseph Smith, Jr., his wife Emma Hale Smith was left with much to shoulder: salvaging Joseph's estate, the safety of her family, her own grief, and growing isolation as danger and rumors swirled around her.

Through the eyes of one of her sons and Lucy Mack Smith, Emma's struggles reveal a courageous woman who stood as a pillar of strength for her loved ones, and who looked forward to a promise of being together with her family forever.

  • 2 stars "First off let me state that the history was interesting. To see what went on from Emma Smith's perspective was reveling and refreshing. As far as the quality of the movie goes I can't recommend this movie. Lets start with the soundtrack. The almost constant orchestration was more than annoying. Acting was off, not professional in many instances. The way the story was told through Lucy Smith got old in a hurry. The length of the movie was excessive. This could have been done just as well in a 60 minute presentation. I you are not LDS this movie will not make sense in a lot of doctrinal ways. All in all, I had to force myself to sit through this and was so glad when it was over. Speaking of which, the ending dragged on forever. I would have preferred to just read an article with this history in it."
