The documentary contains little to no narration, serving only to reveal the treatment of children in Evangelical Bible camps. It is a look inside the Conservative Christian view of the world, which contains an "Army of God" to "take back America for Christ."
After the release of the documentary, liberals vandalized the camp ground. As a result, the owner of the camp ground required that the camp be shut down. The camp director Becky Fisher has announced that she still plans to host the camp upon finding a new location.
