Storyline

Residing in a rural patch of Idaho's rugged Treasure Valley are the Followers of Christ, an ultra-devout Christian sect who believe in God, family, and faith healing. Members of the church, which dates back to the 1890s, refuse medical treatment of any kind and, as a result, the small community experiences a staggeringly high child mortality rate, estimated at 31 percent by some local reports. Inside the church, these deaths have largely gone unscrutinized, for the elusive and private Followers invoke their constitutional right to religious freedom. But to outsiders including the local sheriff and former members the deaths are examples of medical neglect and reason for prosecution.
