Synopsis

Sons of Perdition is a feature length documentary that tells the extraordinary story of teenagers forced to fend for themselves after being banished from their strict polygamist community. The film looks first at the home these teens have left behind: the disturbing world of a polygamist compound run by a feared and worshipped prophet. The starkly beautiful landscape of southern Utah reveals a fascinating community hidden from mainstream America. Through the teens’ lives, news coverage, and current footage of the town, the documentary captures the extraordinary picture of a strange and complex polygamist community in the American West.
