(DISTANT SIRENS WAILING)

(PHONE VIBRATES)

(PHONE VIBRATES)

Hi.

Um, whoever's watching,

I just wanted to say,

if you are at the camp

and we're not back yet,

that I just wanted to say

don't worry.

Uh, the ascension is something

we've all been looking forward to

and we couldn't be happier,

so our round-trip from this

place and back

is really something

to celebrate.

So, um...

eat and drink and make yourself

comfortable,

and we look forward to seeing

you when we return.

Um...

Okay. Bye.

You seriously spent

$20 on that

and didn't get

the car battery?

You said they did it

already.

- Nope. No.

- Yeah. Yeah.

No. I said that

right before we left,

I was told that they were all

were gonna kill themselves.

And that's why we left

the cult.

She didn't say anything about

killing themselves.

She didn't.

It's a UFO death cult.

It's what they do.

They just call it

something different.

I rescued us from a cult.

I saved you from mass suicide.

You're welcome.

The, uh, owner still gone?

Yep. But be fast.

You want, um, pork or shrimp?

Uh, neither. I'm good.

- You're not eating lunch?

- Nope.

Gotta save the money you spent

on antique video equipment

and not the car battery.

Oh, tattoos, those were

an investment.

What?

You know they used to feed us

real food.

You know, vegetables and fish

that's not powder.

I'd rather be alive and eat

raman

than be dead and eat...

corn.

I know they were going to do

it, now they clearly are,

so I was, like,

ten years off.

They didn't say anything about

killing themselves.

They said...

Move your head.

They said they were going

somewhere,

and we don't know how long or

where they were going...

- Good.

- How's that good?

If we were back at the camp,

we'd have, like,

good food and support,

and we wouldn't be

one dirty house away

from being homeless.

I need the car.

I've got deprogramming in, like,

half an hour. Ow.

I don't want to go to

deprogramming anymore.

Are you gonna be the one to

get another job

if we don't qualify for aid?

And stop leaving the dome light

on in the car.

You're making the car battery

even worse if that's possible.

(RAZOR BUZZING)

It was mostly a joke.

But, um...

he's not happy.

I heard him crying

the other night, again.

And, um...

the cult sent us

a good-bye video.

WOMAN:

Whoa. What was that like?

I mean, I was relieved,

at first,

because... they're not dead.

And then I felt bad.

Because now Aaron thinks

I pulled him out

all those years ago

for no reason.

All of his memories

of the cult

are as a kid or a teenager

or whatever.

So all those memories

are good,

and he sees our lives here

as horrible.

But, to me,

the thing that makes our lives

here better

is thinking for ourselves.

And I don't know why we haven't

been able

to make a living

or make friends...

meet girls.

WOMAN:
Recovery from cult mind

control is a lifelong process,

and if he resents you for

pulling him out,

that's common.

Whether he resents me

or he doesn't,

feeling responsible for

his well-being 24/7

is exhausting.

They're gonna take the car.

The credit card was

a bad idea.

I'll figure it out.

Yeah, okay.

I wanna go back.

Have fun with that.

No, I'm serious.

I'm going,

just... for a visit.

You have a horrible memory.

That place is not

what you think it is.

- I know.

- Great. Let's not go.

Why do you wanna go back?

We can say good-bye.

Get some closure.

They were our family.

One day.

One night.

We come straight back.

Will that make you

feel better?

Uh...

Because if that'll get you

Justin David Ramsay Benson (born 1 March 1967 in Dublin, Republic of Ireland) is a former Irish cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium pace bowler as well as an occasional wicket-keeper. Though born in Ireland, he spent the early part of his cricket career playing solely in England, starting by playing minor counties cricket with Cambridgeshire before moving on to play first-class cricket with Leicestershire. He spent five years with Leicestershire from 1988 to 1993 and as his career with them was winding down, he began to play for the country of his birth shortly after they gained associate membership of the International Cricket Council in 1993. He made his debut for Ireland against Australia in 1993 and was then selected for the 1994 ICC Trophy. He carried on playing for Ireland whilst also again playing minor counties cricket for Cambridgeshire, playing in one more ICC Trophy in 1997 as well as the inaugural European Championship in 1996. His last match came against the MCC at Lord's in August 1997 at which point he had represented Ireland 59 times. He was captain in all his games in 1996 and 1997. more…
