Episode Summary

Polygamy Cult
Flora escaped from the infamous Polygamous cult known as the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints), which, until recently, was run by the notorious Warren Jeffs. Now, she helps women and children find safe passage out of polygamy when they decide to leave or, worse, are expelled from their communities. Aneesa was born and raised as a Baptist in Queens, NY, until she found Islam during her time at Hunter College. Shortly after converting, Aneesa met and married Shahid and, in accordance with Islamic precepts, suggested that he marry another woman. Michelle runs a safe house for polygamy's forgotten young men, known as the 'Lost Boys'. Banished from their homes for transgressions including movie-watching and talking to girls, these boys have been left to fend for themselves. Finally, Carolyn escaped from the FLDS three years ago, and has recently written a best-selling book called, appropriately enough, "Escape."moreless
