Three months have passed since Keith Raniere, founder of the defunct self-help company NXIVM, was convicted of sex trafficking, racketeering, and wire fraud conspiracy. Among other things the accused cult leader was found guilty of taking graphic sexual photos of a 15-year-old girl and conspiring to confine her older sister in a room for 23 months.

Just in time for what should have been Raniere's sentencing (that's delayed to 2020 now, FYI), Lifetime has put out a made-for-TV movie based on the experience of a mother who tried to free her daughter from Raniere's secretive blackmail scheme involving nudes, near-starvation, indentured servitude, and human branding.

Lifetime—the network also bringing you a ripped-from-headlines college admission scandal movie next month—has built a reputation pumping out cable-ready reenactments of everything from the Amanda Knox case to the Elizabeth Smart story in an unsettlingly short amount of time.
