Sons of Perdition

Showing at the Tribeca Film Festival: Sons of Perdition, directed by Jennliyn Merten and Tyler Measom

Synopsis from the film's website:

Sons of Perdition is a rare, inside look at polygamist teens that have become religious refugees in mainstream America. The film reveals the hidden world of polygamy through the eyes of exiled teenage boys and girls, and the dictatorial prophet who has banished them from their families, community, and religious salvation. The documentary explores the heartbreaking losses and hopeful determination of these young exiles as they fend for themselves in a strange new world. With unprecedented access, Sons of Perdition captures the raw, daily struggle of polygamy’s lost children and the extraordinary story of their survival.
