In an emotional conversation, Lesley Smailes shares her story of becoming part of a religious cult in America shortly after finishing matric in South Africa. She’s candid about the 10 years she spent in the cult, the loss of her eldest son, the isolation and pain of losing yourself, and the hedonism that counterbalanced that when she returned to South Africa with her husband and children.
