“Based on a true story. Leslie Wagner-Wilson, trapped in Jonestown, a controlling, destitute settlement run by an increasingly manic Jim Jones, has grown increasingly disillusioned. Leslie’s husband Joe however, has risen through the ranks of the People’s Temple cult and, despite knowing of his wife’s unhappiness, is determined to keep her and their son in Jonestown. As conditions at the settlement deteriorate, Leslie grows more desperate, and along with a few other People’s Temple members, take a big risk for a chance at freedom, not knowing whether or not they’ll make it out alive.”
