Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

Professor and sociologist James Ault and film documentarian Michael Camerini combine forces to tell the story of five families from a fundamental Baptist church in a small town in central Massachusetts. Pastor John preaches that the world is only 10,000 years old and warns his flock about the corrupting sexual influence of "that Devil television." Rock music, ice skating, and commercial television are all depicted as evil. The church has set up a school for classes K through 12 to teach the importance of the Bible and the Constitution.
