WATCH TRAILER

Documentary about the Greek religious commune founded in rural Baldwin County Alabama in 1906. Living as one family on a primitive frontier, they built a commercial empire with a work ethic that forbade marriage. When they recruited young Greek immigrants in the 1950s to take over, one by the one they faded away, unable to accept the near-monastic life of the commune. As the original members of the Plantation reached their end, they decided to build a monumental church, now a landmark of Greek Othrodox architecture, where the settlers now lie row on row in identical graves.
