Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (Nicole Vicius), a couple and documentary filmmaking team, infiltrate a mysterious group led by an enigmatic young woman named Maggie (Brit Marling). Intent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the followers from her grip, Peter and Lorna start to question their objective and each other as they unravel the secrets of Maggie’s underworld.

As Maggie breaks down the defenses of the group members with a cunning combination of cruelty, empathy and personal magnetism, the line between investigation and indoctrination begins to blur, and Peter and Lorna starts to wonder if there could possibly be any truth to her story. When the initially skeptical Peter’s devotion to Maggie begins to grow, he is asked to perform an impossible and illegal task for her, and Lorna desperately looks for help in saving him from Maggie’s machinations.
