The film is 36 years old now but I have just watched it for the first time as had never heard of it before. I have seen a similar movie - Ticket to Heaven - which deals with the same subject and is also quite good but I feel not quite as authentic as this one, which was made by ex-moonies who know the subject firsthand. For a film made by non-professional actors I was surprised at how good it is. - I was a moonie myself in Boonville and San Francisco just a little earlier than the period shown in this film, and I remained a follower of Moon much longer than the people in the film -- so I know the subject quite well, too. The only part I really don't know is the deprogramming. I never experienced that but instead lost faith gradually.
