Over 30 years have passed since the Australian cult “The Family” was abolished. One day, police raided the cult’s compound, finding out that children were being completely brainwashed by their parents. After years of trying to come to terms with what happened to him, one man recalls the set of events, from growing up in the cult and managing to escape at the age of 15.
The one and only Anne Hamilton-Byrne commanded the Family and anyone who belonged or identified with the cult. Anne managed to convince everyone, including herself, that she was a vessel for Christ and was on earth to fulfill a purpose.
This purpose included starting a cult that very quickly grew completely out of control, becoming one of the most controversial cult groups in history. Luckily though, justice eventually came through, and she had to deal with the consequences of the evil she had done to dozens of families.
