The Doukhobors, an Amish-like isolationist ethnic Russian Christian sect, clashed with Canadian authorities in 1900s British Columbia over land seizures by the government, compulsory education, etc. They protested against Canadian policy and materialism with acts of mass nudity and arson. So, based on true events, this film tries to jazz up a limp story with many silly protest scenes and ritual bonfires where (mostly attractive) women get naked and sing songs ("The Naked Flame", get it?).
Set in the wilds of Canada about the goings on in a small town near a mine. Its a tale of two groups living uneasily and the poor kids who want to marry and the Dukabor troublemaker who has a hold over the boys father and much of the town.~ imdb
