Storyline

In God's Country is a modern day story of slavery. Young women ignored by the police and protected by "freedom of religion" are trapped in polygamous communities scattered throughout North America. Judith Joseph is one of them. Despite being raised under the watchful eyes of "God's Keepers" and knowing no other life, Judith realises she cannot watch her sixteen year old daughter succumb to the same fate she was born into. Desperate, with no other resources and no connections, Judith sets her house on fire and escapes with her five children. Alone, on the "outside", Judith is ill equipped to handle the challenges facing her, but she's determined to build a life. As she struggles to feed her family, Judith's daughter naively runs back to the community they've just escaped. Judith knows that if she doesn't intervene her own daughter will end up married to her former husband. Even knowing she is no match for the powerful men who call themselves prophets, Judith refuses to turn her back on... Written by Shaftesbury

A fearful world
30 March 2014 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Poncho1989, you're correct that this is based on a true story, but the person who told this story was not Warren Jeff's wife, but the wife of his chief aide - now also in prison.

This movie shows the the ambivalence of the people living in this sect, told from birth that Polygamy is G-d's will, wanting to live according to that, but also having human needs and desires. I have known many of these women, those who have fled the sect, and love many of them as my sisters. This movie correctly portrays the world of polygamy and its disastrous effect on women and children, who are treated as property. It also turns woman against woman in an attempt to have what limited power they can.

This movie isn't great art. The writing is just okay, but the characters are portrayed well and the plot is based on reality, which is sometimes more frightening than fiction. If you want to understand the world that Warren Jeffs continues to control from his prison cell, watch this movie.
