Rumspringa refers to the Amish rite of passage which begins when an Amish child reaches 16 years of age, and continues until they decide whether or not they want to join or leave the Amish church.

"Devil's Playground" is a fascinating and disturbing documentary that follows several teens through their time of rumspringa. We watch as one young boy becomes addicted crystal meth and ends up becoming a dealer.

Amish teenagers search for answers and even as they party. Daily they struggled to decide what they believe and how they want to spend the rest of their lives.
