Now their Prophet has been murdered and their camp set aflame, and it's clear that Minnow knows something-- but she's not talking. As she languishes in juvenile detention, she struggles to un-learn everything she has been taught to believe, adjusting to a life behind bars and recounting the events that led up to her incarceration. But when an FBI detective approaches her about making a deal, Minnow sees she can have the freedom she always dreamed of-- if she's willing to part with the terrible secrets of her past.
