The FLDS church is back in the news thanks to the new Warren Jeffs documentary series, Prisoner of the Prophet, the latest true crime documentary to dig into the polygamous cult.
In 2022, Netflix dissected the inner workings of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with Keep Sweet, Pray and Obey. Now Brielle Decker, one of the 70-plus wives of church leader Warren Jeffs, is sharing her story.
Told from the point of view of Brielle Decker, who became Jeffs’ 65th wife at just 18 years old, Prisoner of the Prophet allows her to give outsiders a look at what took place within the abusive cult. Not only does she discuss Jeffs’ marriages to underage girls, but she recounts her imprisonment in the group’s “House of Hiding” and what it took to escape—something she did barefoot after years of torment and abuse.
