Based upon the true story of Jim Jones, a self-proclaimed prophet. In the 1960s, he began as an idealist helping minorities and working against racism. Later, after increased power and attention, Jim Jones became focused on his belief in nuclear holocaust. He had a loyal following of about 1000 people, who had donated their entire life savings to him to join his commune. When possible illegal activities came to the attention of the authorities, they started to investigate. Rather that faces the charges, Jim Jones committed suicide, and convinced virtually all of his followers to do the same. Written by
