    • Synopsis
    • Claire is under the grip of a mysterious new cult called Faults. Desperate to be reunited with their daughter, Claire’s parents set out to recruit Ansel Roth. Ansel is one of the world’s foremost authorities on mind control. He even used to have a TV show. But Ansel’s speciality, deprogramming cult members and returning them to their families, is not an exact science. Mistakes were made, lives were lost. Now, even his own book publisher is looking to break his legs. Ansel sure could do with the cash that Claire’s parents are offering. Ansel kidnaps Claire and sets to work on this fragile and vulnerable young woman. But Claire reveals herself to be a formidable challenge for the old pro; her belief is unshakeable and her logic is undeniable. She can even walk through walls! A battle of wits develops between the two, and as they delve deeper into each other’s minds, the question soon becomes, just who is the one being deprogrammed?
