Deprogrammed chronicles Ted 'Black Lightning' Patrick's anti-cult crusade. His practice of 'deprogramming', also known as 'reverse brainwashing', started in the early 1970s and quickly snowballed into a vast underground movement composed of concerned parents, ex-cultist-turned-deprogrammers and some sympathetic law-enforcers whose mission was to physically and mentally remove individuals from 'cults'.

Film to be followed by Q&A discussion with film director, Mia Donovan.
