For several months we've been following the drama surrounding the Jones family, which has been ripped apart by Scientology's policy of "disconnection." Phil and Willie Jones are former members of the Church of Scientology, and they are prevented from seeing their grown children, Mike and Emily, who are each members of Scientology's "Sea Organization."
