A young man named Victor realizes the shortcomings of the Utopian ideals on the hippie commune where he was raised. Victor's mother is funding the commune where the guru Insley hypnotizes and seduces women with a technique he calls "running." Insley manipulates the minds of these women so that they give him their bodies and all their worldly possessions. Victor's childhood love, Becky, returns to take care of her deathly ill father. Victor, haunted by visions of Becky's death, is desperate to save her and himself by escaping from the polygamous cult. Preoccupied with Insley's free love philosophy, the adults of the community overlook the painful reality that the self destructive behavior of their children is most certainly due to early exposure to sex and drugs.

I enjoyed this film. It gave a pretty good view of what it is like growing up in a cult. The confusion and power structures were really well explored in this movie. I cant believe it only has a rating of 4.9, that is far far lower than the rating this movie deserves.
The focus of the movie centers on the youngsters involved in a cult, whose inhabitants are tucked away in what could be anywhere in middle America. The acting is superb considering their age. There is a nice magic realism type feeling to this that rings true. I recommend it for anyone wanting a teenager's view on growing up in a cult.
