THE COMPOUND
Screenplay by Adrienne Lusby & Emiliana Monahan Dore

There's more to polygamy than you think.  And there’s a reason why one of their leaders, Warren Jeffs, was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list.

When Private Investigator, Rachel Sullivan is hired to investigate the disappearance of a young woman from a Fundamentalist Mormon Polygamist sect, she’ll go undercover into a bizarre and dangerous world hidden in the heartland of America.

On the compound, people are controlled by brain washing, the fear of burning in hell, and, in extreme cases, the threat of “BLOOD ATONEMENT” – a murder sanctioned by the “apostles” of the clan to punish anyone who tries to flee.

Now, in order to uncover the truth, Rachel must engage in a treacherous series of mind games with the group’s enigmatic leader, DAVID ROYALE.

Based on extensive research, THE COMPOUND is a powerful psychological thriller about one of the most secretive practices in America’s history.
