This Week On â€˜Global Currents’â€¦
â€œPolygamy’s Lost Boysâ€
Saturday, October 21st at 7 p.m. ET/PT (60 mins.)
Polygamy’s Lost Boys follows three young men from Fundamentalist Mormon communities in Bountiful, British Columbia, and Colorado City, Arizona in their struggles to build normal lives in the outside world. Like Peter Pan’s lost boys, they are cast out, or have left on their own accord and are marooned without family, social skills and little education. Caught between a volatile political clash between their Church’s two leaders, Warren Jeffs in the U.S. and Winston Blackmore in Bountiful â€“ the former arrested by the FBI and the latter investigated by the RCMP â€“ the boys make life-changing choices that will ultimately transform them into mature, adult men and rock the Church that devalued them.
