Summary "Michael Travesser used to be a sailor called Wayne Bent. Then he became the self-proclaimed Messiah, claiming to know the exact hour of an apocalyptic event that will mark the end of the world. You might not believe him, but dozens of people do. In fact, they hang on his every word and serve him with absolute devotion. In this remarkable film, members of Travesser's cult – the Lord Our Righteousness Church – begin preparing for death as he tells them time is fast running out. Film-maker Ben Anthony obtains unique access to the cult's Strong City compound in New Mexico, USA, to capture the former Seventh Day Adventist minister's powerful hold over his tribe.
