Wiebo's War tells the story of a Christian community at war with the oil and gas industry. Wiebo Ludwig is the prime suspect in a recent string of pipeline bombings. The bombings echo a campaign of sabotage he waged against the oil and gas industry in the 1990's - barricading roads, blowing up wells and culminating in the unsolved death of a sixteen-year-old girl on his family's farm. The Ludwig family lives in close adherence to their religious values. They are self-sufficient in food and energy, but isolated, with five married couples, seven unmarried adult children, and thirty eight grandchildren, many entering their teenaged years. And they believe that those who don't share their values, like filmmaker David York, are living in terrible darkness.
