Storyline

Louis Gibbs toils tirelessly to build a future for his wife Carol and three young kids by building a farm in the Bible Belt. Times are hard and credit tight, so several neighboring farms go belly up. Instead of doing her domestic work properly, Carol starts making crazy expenses and joins dodgy reverend Steve Riordan's bible classes. In fact Riordan heads a nutty, armed anti-government and anti-'Jewish bankers' apocalyptic cult. Louis only realizes the full truth after Carol has joined with their kids, completely brainwashed. Sheriff Higgins sympathizes but can't help Louis get his children back legally, so he files for separation. But Riordan's disciples will stop at nothing to keep his Aryan Nation flock together. Desperate Louis ultimately turns to private detective Danny Leland to get his kids back any way it takes Written by KGF Vissers

Tom Skerritt was Outstanding !
24 October 2005 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Enjoyed the great acting and direction of Tom Skerritt,(Steve Riordan),"Tuscaloosa",02, who played a religious nut who hated Jews and loved Hitler and his policies. The film starts out with Dylan Walsh,(Louis Gibbs),"Edmond",'05, who wants to be a successful farmer and has a hard time trying to get a job and establish himself. His wife, Carol Gibbs,(Andrea Roth),"The Untold",'02, is very unhappy with her husband not finding any work, and just simply wants out of the marriage. Carol runs into Steve Riordan, who gives her security and his blessings. However, his blessings, is jumping her bones in one scene on the bed with her children watching. There is good entertainment in this film and great acting by all the supporting actors, but we have seen this type of film before and unfortunately there are people out in the world who have these strong feelings about their State & Federal Government. Unfortunately, it is a True Story!
