Desperate to be reunited with their daughter, Claire's parents set out to recruit Ansel Roth (Leland Orser), one of the world's foremost authorities on cults and mind control. But Ansel's specialty, deprogramming cult members and returning them to their families, is not an exact science, and a series of financial setbacks has left him in debt to his manager.
