A documentary about the extraordinary discovery of a hidden Maoist cult that hit the headlines in 2013, when police uncovered that its leaders had imprisoned their followers for several decades, in and around Brixton, South London. The film features interviews one woman in particular, who remarkably, was actually born into the cult and spent her first 30 years trapped within its confines; stories of harrowing abuse and indoctrination emerge.
