The journalist Patrick works at the VICE, a company dedicated to cover bizarre news. When his sister Caroline joins a community, she travels abroad with her new family. Out of the blue, Caroline invites her brother to visit her in an undefined country and Patrick travels by helicopter with his friends Jake and Sam that work with him at VICE. They find weird that the men that have come to guide them to the Eden Parish have guns. On the arrival to the camp, Patrick, Sam and Jake find a community of happy people that worship Father. They interview Father but soon they realize that people are not as happy as they seem to be. Further, they find that they are trapped in the Parish Eden and they want to leave the place with the newcomers. But the Father does not have intention to let them go.Written by

You fellas seem lost. Do you need someone to walk you back to your cottage?
No, we're fine.
You sure about that? You wouldn't wanna walk into the wrong place.
Why? Is there something you don't want us to see?
It's just an expression, friends. It's late. You wanna go pokin' around other people's business you go right on ahead. But if you put your hand into the dog's bowl, don't be surprised if you get bit.

Mystified by high score
i saw this film as part of a trendy festival in London, and the writer/director was present, so everything was set up to feel great about it. But we just walked away thinking 'stupid film' and bemoaning how and why film audiences are treated like such monkeys compared to theatre, music, art. OK maybe not modern art. I don't think its giving too much away to say that this is a mockumentary, filmed via journos' cameras, and that it's a kind of watered down remake of a real event. After a very very slow first 45 mins, where the most exciting thing is the background music, we reach the main event. The problem is that it's filmed like a trendy art-house movie meets paranormal activity style, but the plot and detail is just dumb. There are three main things that happen and there is just no real reason whatsoever for any of them. Nothing adds up. You just walk away thinking 'why didn't they just not let them in? Why were they doing that? Why... why...' It's kind of like taking a terrifying real event like the twin towers and deciding to invent a remake of it but with one small tower and a radio controlled plane and trying to pass it off as something new.
