For those of us who are fascinated by the Jonestown tragedy, this documentary will shed some light on it's mystery with Stephan Jones, Jackie Speier, Hue Fortson Jr., Eugene Smith, Timothy Carter, Terri Buford, Grace Stoen, Laura Johnston Kohl, Tim Reiterman, Marshall Kilduff, as well as others who recall the tragedy in 1978.
