Naive Julie's longing for freedom and devotion makes her an easy target for the Guru's lust and her boyfriend's willingness to trade her for power and fame. Isolated and drugged, she resists being brainwashed into submission. Sage, an ex-devotee, knows the evils that await and risks his life to rescue her. Yet he also becomes caught in the Guru's web and it's up to Julie whether she can save both of them.
