THE COMMON SENSE FARM

Large_film_12720622_photo1
The Common Sense Farm exanimes the world of the Twelve Tribes, a communal Judeo-Christian religious group often referred to as a cult. As a seventeen-year-old woman goes through her wedding, the community's religious goals -- and the role of women and children in achieving them -- are revealed. This insulated way of life has led to a fragile relationship with the outside world, sparking controversies, conflicts and misunderstandings on both sides of the fence.
