I Escaped A Cult

I Escaped a Cult
Find out what life inside a cult is really like from individuals who “drank the Kool-Aid,” living and practicing the beliefs of a radical organization. Brent and Maura tell their emotional stories. Brent describes what it was like as a young boy growing up in Salt Lake City as a member of the FLDS, the Fundamentalist Church of the Latter-Day Saints. The cult still practices polygamy; his father had three wives and 20 kids. But to a young boy, it all seemed normal.
