In 1978, the People's Temple cult leader Jim Jones led the residents of the Jonestown agricultural commune into an alleged mass suicide, in which almost the entire population of the settlement was wiped out. With the aid of footage from within the cult's emotional meetings, Stanley Nelson, Marcia Smith and Noland Walker present a candid look at the story behind the largest group suicide in history.
