Filmmaker Michael W. Wilson places the rapidly expanding Christian fundamentalist movement in a historical context with this documentary that opens with footage of an obscure Christian survivalist group that flourished during the 1970s and 80s, and examines the ideological echoes of their belief system in a post-9/11 America. Religious violence seems to be everywhere these days; it's plain to see that some folks truly believe that God wants them to kill for the betterment of their people. Now, as the homeland grows darkened by the ominous shadows of fear and intolerance, a closer look at the foundational ideas, organizational structure, and psychological dynamics of those who have adopted such an apocalyptic worldview allows those who may not share their perspective to better understand precisely why they are killing in the name of a higher power.
