GLORIAVALE is an observational documentary examining the widespread abuse inside the infamous Gloriavale Christian Community cult and the institutional failures that have allowed it to continue.

Exploring the secretive community through never before seen home video footage, the filmmakers follow the Ready family as they mount a ground-breaking legal case against the cult’s powerful leaders.

Long associated with allegations of sexual and physical abuse, human rights violations and fraud, the true extent of Gloriavale’s crimes and the cruelty of its leaders is exposed as the Ready family risk losing their home, their community and those they love for a chance to bring positive change to Gloriavale.
