Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Based on a true story, this drama centers on a woman's attempts to bring down a sadistic religious zealot. Polly Walker is Paula, a social worker who at first is wowed by a religious cult led by Moses (Luc Picard). Eventually though, she finds there's much more to the group's commune than meets the eye. In the tradition of the Manson Family and Jonestown, Moses wields a deadly power over his loyal followers. From director Mario Azzopardi, Savage Messiah also stars Isabelle Blais and Isabelle Cyr.
