A naval veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future - until he is tantalised by The Cause and its charismatic leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman). Putting his plan into action, the leader enlists the naval veteran as his right handman and the cult soon begins to grow. But with success also comes questions about the groups true intentions and real ethos.
