In this eye-opening video, join me, an ex-polygamist, as I react to the 1981 movie "Child Bride of Short Creek." This film portrays the lives of those in the FLDS community, and I’ll be comparing its depiction to my own experiences growing up in a polygamous family. Watch as I share personal insights, highlight the differences and similarities, and provide an insider's perspective on the realities of life within the FLDS. Whether you're curious about polygamy, the FLDS church, or simply interested in a unique reaction video, this is one you don't want to miss!
