Sons of Perdition: Leaving the Cult
Award Winning Films • 45m
In one of the most hidden corners of America, the Fundamentalist Church of the Latter Day Saints live an isolated life, with polygamy still the norm. Men can have up to fifty wives and dozens of children. Teenagers can be expelled from the only community they've known for sins as small as listening to music or talking to the opposite sex. The film tracks three boys who have been exiled from the sect as they try to understand their place in the world, experimenting with girls, beer and freedom with very limited knowledge of normal society.
