While running surveillance in an industrial section of Scottsdale, P.I. Lena Jones discovers the body of a woman connected to Second Zion, an infamous polygamy cult based in northern Arizona. With the help of a former polygamist "sister wife," Lena soon discovers a shocking secret: if one man can have 10 wives, then 9 men will have none.
Second Zion makes certain these possible rivals don't stick around by turning these young teens into Arizona's "Lost Boys."
