Before she takes this big step, her friends convince her to go on Rumspringa with them in Hollywood. Rumspringa is a rite of passage for teenagers in the Amish community.

Upon returning home, Hannah realizes that leaving her family is harder than she anticipated. When she finds out that she is pregnant, she must decide whether to stay home and marry Samuel, raising the baby as his, or return to LA to be with Josh and risk being shunned by her family forever.
