This documentary examines the abuses of Warren Jeffs, the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, a polygamy practicing denomination of the Mormons. Oscar nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil) interviews past members about the practices of the church and delves into the lasting psychological impact Jeffs has on members. Experts Sam Brown, who wrote the book "Prophets Prey" and John Krakauer who penned the best seller "Under the Banner of Heaven" provide valuable insight as to how Jeffs was able to become such a powerful leader in the organization.
