Dramatization of the lives of the people of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah, collectively known as "Short Creek," a community made up of members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, a Mormon separatist group practicing child marriage and polygamy. Written by
Actually, this film is not about a nominal Christian group as one reviewer wrote, it is about a fundamentalist Mormon sect. What is important to know about this is the truth behind early LDS doctrine. Even though the modern day LDS followers will discourage this belief, they cling to the fact that the good LDS men will become gods on their own planets in the afterlife with multiple wives.
The film was interesting and it caused me to do some research in the group that it is based on. Some reference works will point out there are between 150,000 to 300,000 practicing polygamous people in the US. Most of these are fringe LDS.
