Throughout the 1960’s and 70’s, an independent Baptist preacher named Lester Roloff established a series of rehab homes dubbed “The Farm” for troubled youth and adults. The homes were continually accused of abuse, and in some cases, torture. This retrospective piece uses found footage to take a look inside the culture of “The Farm”.
