Source: (2005) VHS, 40 min. Bethlehem, PA: International Institute for Restorative Practices and Real Justice.

This 35 minute documentary begins with news reports of the arson of an historic wooden covered bridge in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and the eventual apprehension of six local, college age men who set the fire. The focus of the video, however, is made up of footage of a restorative conference conducted by the International Institute for Restorative Practices. It concludes with television news footage after the sentencing.
