"The Sacrament" stars Bowen and Swanberg as reporters for VICE Media who journey to a remote Central American compound along with a photographer (Kentucker Audley) hoping to reunite with his sister (Seimetz), who has dropped off the map after struggling with drug addiction. They find an isolated community of true believers devoted to a shadowy but charismatic figure called "Father." Skeptical at first, the journalists begin to come around to the group’s utopian claims, until things rapidly take a very dark turn.
