Lindsay claims that from ages 13 to 23 she was one of 10 “maidens” and was sexually abused by alleged cult leader Victor Barnard -- a fugitive currently facing 59 felony charges, including criminal sexual conduct. Lindsay blames her father, Carmen, for turning a blind eye and says she can never forgive him for failing to protect her. Carmen says he had no idea what his daughter was going through, because Barnard had such a mental hold on him -- and he’s desperate to repair his relationship with Lindsay. Emotions run high when the two come together for the first time in more than a year. How does Lindsay say she finally escaped a decade of alleged abuse? And, what red flags does she say her father ignored? Plus, can this father and daughter move forward in healing and forgiveness? This program contains strong language and adult subject matter. Viewer discretion advised.
