Storyline

In the 1970s, Ted Patrick becomes known as the "father of deprogramming" and is seen as savior to many parents who had seemingly lost their children to cults. The Special Assistant for Community Relations for then Governor Ronald Reagan, the civil rights activist’s life is upended when his 14 year-old son is nearly converted by the Children of God cult. Subsequently, Patrick reaches out to those families with relatives who had joined the group. Patrick even pretends to join Children of God to learn how they operate. Despite professional training, he is hired by parents and family members to help deprogram their loved ones. Patrick's methods find him standing trial several times on kidnapping charges – a part of his technique he ceases though he continues trying to deprogram cult members like those who have joined Scientology. He is convicted on a number of felony charges over the years due to his methods.
