   schema:reviewBody ""Rita Harper met her husband in a religious cult in the United States. They are happily married, but Rita is still obsessed with their former leader, Leland Swann, and when Leland invites himself into the family home, and then announces his plan to revive People Under God's Command in New Zealand, Rita believes that he's offering her a last chance at salvation." "Leland's arrival coincides with Rita's daughter, Stella, who has retreated home after the end of a relationship and is in no mood to flatter a guru. Rita throws herself into Leland's quest for fame and interferes in Stella's life, but if she can't face the truth of what happened forty years before, she might alienate her daughter and destroy her own marriage."
