Interesting to watch the escapees work to form identities outside of FLDS and troubling to see the barriers they encounter.

Shows what really happens in some of these religious cults. Abusing underage girls etc.

Informative documentary about the teens from the sect, and the great challenges they face to fit in, adjust and grieve the family they left behind.. and cannot see anymore..

Excellent film, lacking any hysteria on the subject.
Clear eyed, it allows Warren Jeffs to damn himself, and the boys to tell their story.
Beyond all the hyperbole on polygamy in the media we discover how deeply and lovingly family-oriented these young men are.
Sad and joyous by turns and eye opening for this watcher.
I hope they are all still well.
Thumbs way up!

Great perspective on a topic I've been fascinated with in the last few years. Realistic but hopeful. I suggest you read Daphne Bramham's The Secret Lives of Saints for a look at the BC section of the FLDS cult.

The things people will do in the name of their religion! Children who leave a polygamous community and how they try to adapt to society and make their way in the world. This is very captivating, and a touching human story that anyone can appreciate.
