A series featuring stories from former members of the Church of Scientology whose lives have been affected by the Church's harmful practices. Along with a team of former high-ranking Scientology insiders who understand the inner workings and policies of the organization, Leah gives the victims a chance to be heard.
Each episode my opinion of Leah Remini continues to grow. She is taking a very personal aspect of a part of her life and opening it up to public knowledge and possible ridicule in an attempt to get information to the public on what really goes on behind the secretive doors of the so-called "church" of scientology. It is heartbreaking to see how this organization is tearing families apart. There have now been, in the last decade, several documentaries and books released in an attempt to educate the public on scientology. The one common factor seems to be the fact that this "church" refuses to sit down and answer questions or debate - anyone. They continue to refuse cameras inside all these properties. Anyone who is walking in truth is never afraid to stand in the light. The series is very well produced. The interviews with the folks who have had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave, knowing their family members will be put under horrific pressure to not have anything to do with them any longer are so hard to hear. I hope that enough is brought forward so that law enforcement can research into the physical abuse end at least. The series is much like hearing about the poor women and children in some of the FLDS situations. They seem trapped. I admire what Leah Remini is trying to accomplish and hope her show can help some of these families.
