When a controversial cult leader builds a utopian city in the Oregon desert, conflict with the locals escalates into a national scandal.

  • Under the watchful eye of his secretary, Ma Anand Sheela, spiritual guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh relocates his ashram from India to Oregon in 1981.
  • The Bhagwan's flamboyant followers irk the tight-knit locals, who pursue legal action against the commune. But Sheela retaliates with a cunning plan.
  • Sheela emerges as a provocative spokeswoman. As Election Day approaches, the Rajneeshees recruit thousands of homeless people to fortify their ranks.
  • Local officials try to build a case against the Rajneeshees. When Sheela's thirst for power turns violent, the Bhagwan finally breaks his silence.
  • The bitter feud between Sheela and the Bhagwan divides the community – and opens the door for the FBI. At the ranch, a task force amasses evidence.
  • The Bhagwan flees the ranch. Sheela and several followers are arrested in Germany. The Bhagwan's devotees – and his enemies – reflect on his legacy.
