Summary:
The flower children of the sixties turned away from traditional American values, searching for truth and fulfillment through a new world of peace and love, drugs and communal living. But the idyllic period of Woodstock and Haight-Ashbury did not last, and many former hippies found themselves attracted to fringe religious groups and counter-culture movements. In the last thirty years these cults have grown at an astonishing rate, and they have taken many different forms. This is a penetrating look at the link between the "summer of love" generation and the rise of cults in America. Interviews with cult members provide an inside look at life in these groups, while reporters and government officials examine some of the famous cases where cult members have followed their leaders to their deaths, from Jim Jones to the Branch Davidians.
