Accurate & very true to personal experience
20 July 2018 | by rebekah_phillipsSee all my reviews

As an ex JW I found this film to be very accurate and true based on my own experience which is spookily similar to the story line

I was worried that this might be a hate campaign towards JW's or paint ex JW's as victims but it absolutely doesn't , it is a true and honest account of what actually happens and leaves people to make their own minds up - a massive well done !
