Amish Teens Tested in Devil's Playground

When they turn 16, Amish teenagers are allowed to explore the customs of the outside "English" world -- including alcohol, drugs and sex -- before deciding whether to join the Amish church for life. Morning Edition host Bob Edwards talks to filmmaker Lucy Walker about the Amish teens who are the subject of her documentary, Devil's Playground.
