TLDR

A pastor takes advantage of vulnerable children.

What it's about

A cult-like management company and its associated church slowly crumble as its members uncover its truths.

The take

The hook of the first episode is a very effective jumping off point, placing us in the middle of the past bond between 2 sisters. Then it immediately occurs to you how wild this premise is, and that in some ways it's still ongoing. A lot of 7M/Shekinah church members and their distraught family members are interviewed to paint the clearest possible picture, and it’s clear that a lot of care and detail was put into this project to sway a viewer away from easy victim-blaming. It’s really tense and generally sad, but the pace definitely dips after episode 1, but it’s also a 3-parter, so you might as well finish the whole thing.

What stands out

I honestly thought the TikTok generation was far too cynical to be brainwashed.
