    It was amazing

    It was just an amazing cry out at an injustice many are so confused at what to do about. All you can do is sob for the women and children stuck in the situation and reach out to Ruth with whatever you can. It was just amazing.

    The music alone in this film is haunting, but the images and testimonies of the victims trapped in America's polygamous sects will blow your mind. This is hands down the best documentary I've ever seen.....

    Outstanding!!

    My grandparents homesteaded 4 miles south of Colorado City and so, I have been aquainted with it off and on all my life. This documentary is something I thought I would never see. The truth of this town come out. This documentary doesn't just bring out a ton of truths, it drenches you in them. Very well done!!

    True Polygamy Story

    Finally, the real story about the polygamists in Colorado City, AZ. This new documentary, the only film to get inside the cult, features, among others, Carolyn Jessop. Carolyn's book, "Escape", just hit the NYT Bestseller list. "Banking on Heaven" reinforces the horrors Ms. Jessop so clearly describes. "Banking on Heaven" will shock and sicken the viewer. How can it be possible to have the Taliban in our own back yard?

    Heart-felt and Inspiring

    In North America, the widely-held impression of the Third World includes the idea that women's rights are non- existent and the treatment of women and children are abhorrent. Well, this film repatriates those notions, and shows that women's rights are not always so assured in Canada or the US. The film is a wake-up call, and also a celebration of several heroines in the struggle for the recognition and equality of women throughout our society. It also deals with the protection of our most important resource, our children. The film may bring you to tears, but it leaves you with a profound sense of hope.

    Eye opening. Highly recommend this documentary. I can not imagine the horrors and heartache these women and children must endure. This should never be happening here in the USA. Then the Mormon Church, the political institutions of Arizona and Utah simply turn their backs on their people by sweeping this issue under the rug. Absolutely shameful. Abuse in the name of religion. This documentary was presented to our small rural Christian church in southern Minnesota where such practices are virtually unknown.
