The documentary claim the presence of prison camps, where Scientology members are fed table scraps and made to sleep on the dirt and to perform manual labor as part of a re-indoctrination program.

The documentary contains interviews with many former members which have not seen or talked since leaving the faith to Scientologist friends and family members.
