1995年3月20日,奧姆真理教在東京地鐵站施放沙林毒氣,造成多人傷亡,引起日本社會恐慌,大眾傳播媒體對奧姆真理教的嚴酷批判亦自此展開。導演自1996年初開始,持家用DV,深入記錄奧姆真理教宣傳部副部長荒木浩的生活,和信徒彼此之間的關係。透過層層堆疊的敘事,引領觀眾進入奧姆真理教瘋狂世界的內在,並逐漸理解這些信徒的行為與價值觀、宇宙觀,他們與其被視為「異常」份子,不如說是對於現代生活的無力融入,展現某種尋找出口的希望。

It was March 20, 1995 when the Aum Supreme Truth cult poison gas attack took place in the Tokyo subways. This documentary, shot on a home-use digital camcorder, covers the everyday, quite ordinary lives of the Aum cult members by gaining access to their housing facilities, and turns the camera around onto the ‘fanatic’ media crowd that surrounds them.
