This production brings to our senses what we sometimes only vaguely hear or read about in the news: polygamy.

Polygamy is marriage in which a spouse of either sex has more than one mate at the same time. It is practiced by more people than commonly realized, and those involved become badly damaged physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Although the modern Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints prohibits polygamy, many “fundamentalist” groups split from the Mormons after Joseph Smith’s death and continue to follow his original teachings by practicing plural marriage.

Perhaps the most enlightening part of the presentation is the testimonies of Bible-believing Christians who left both the fundamentalist group and the modern, mainstream group. This DVD will better help people understand Mormonism and why polygamy in particular has played such an important part in the cult’s history. Many people will enjoy this eye-opening documentary.
