Using Lawrence Wright's book of the same name as a starting point, Gibney tells the history of Scientology and L Ron Hubbard, as well as the rise to power of leader David Miscavage, here accused of the intimidation, beating, imprisonment, and slave labour of his followers. We see the religion struggle to be recognised as tax-exempt by the IRS and how former members of the church believe it is exploiting such status to stash billions of dollars in properties around the world.
