Synopsis

What drives people into ideological groups, causing them to isolate from mainstream society and become protective of secret beliefs? Viewers are taken inside groups like the Ku Klux Klan, the Moonies, and Scientology, to reveal what makes these groups different from traditional organizations. The program also reveals the histories behind the Masons and the Illuminati, and reveals how the myths of their influence over the world began. Viewers see KKK members in the light of day as they explain their unifying idea of racial superiority. The show also looks at some less-known groups such as the Unarians, a UFO cult in San Diego, who believe a spaceship full of friendly aliens will soon land to guide us to a better future. The program also drops in on Anton LeVay, the late founder of the Church of Satan, and unveils a real black mass.
