Summary
Why would 39 people from all walks of life believe that committing suicide would open the door to a "higher reality" among the stars? Why would a militant religious group set fire to their compound, contributing to the death of 75 of their own? In the tragic tales of the Heaven's Gate cult and the Branch Davidians, a window is opened to the enigmatic world of cults today. This video takes an unflinching look at these two cases through extensive CBS News footage and interviews with federal agents, law enforcement officials, and reporters. While cults have always been a part of American life, are they now more likely to go to extremes? See extensive footage of the raid on the Davidians' compound in Waco, Texas, and hear from former members of Heaven's Gate
