Primarily known for his TV documentaries, Louis Theroux moves into film to investigate the mysterious Church of Scientology. Despite numerous attempts to gain access to the Church and its members, Louis is not able to break through the opacity of its walls. Undeterred, he recruits ex-Scientologists to take part in filmed reconstructions of their alleged experiences. However, events take a turn for the peculiar when it emerges that the Church is also making a movie about Louis. Full of his trademark humour and eccentricity, the documentary is an expose on one of the world’s most secretive organisations.
