Based on the Apocalypse as predicted by Harold Camping, the film follows three of his followers before and after the apocalypse. They all wholeheartedly believe that the world will end on this date and that God will take them among the 200 million other chosen into the Kingdom of Heaven.
This is a documentary in which we are given access to these peoples lives and thoughts along with those of Harold Camping himself. We watch as they go about their days in anticipation of the big event.
We follow a woman who spends her days spreading the gospel of Camping on the streets, armed with pamphlets and a sign.
We watch a man as he reflects on trying to live his life with the thought of imminent destruction of the world.
There is one unfortunate woman who is due to deliver her unborn child on the exact day of the Apocalypse.
One common thread among these people is that they have given to their prophet’s church their life savings so that they may enter heaven without any earthly possessions.

Most of the movie is just leading up to the event. When the event actually comes and goes we are given a glimpse into the media circus that surrounded camping as he weaseled his way out of why the world didn’t end.
You get to see how these people are absolutely shocked that nothing has happened. Snippets of angry callers to Camping’s Family Radio Ministry are played. Unfortunately, the one family I wanted to see, the pregnant woman and her family, did not want to speak to anyone following the failed rapture.

It is particularly interesting to watch when you realize that they have nothing left. The followers of Evangelist Harold Camping have alienated friends and family. That they have basically no money and have quit their jobs.

This in stark contrast as you watch Camping discussing the imminent end of the world while sitting on a 75 million dollar net worth.
Harder still to consider that his ministry continued to survive on nothing except donations and employed over 300 people after multiple failed doomsday predictions.
It’s only an hour-long movie. It is definitely worth watching for so many different reasons. You feel for these people while at the same moment feel incredulous at their foolishness in believing this Evangelist.
At the same time, you realize that there are other people at this very moment being lead down the same exact path by unscrupulous Con Artists.
I only wish that it had focused on these peoples lives before they joined the church to try to understand why it is that they were hooked into it in the first place.
I give it 5/5 broken lives.
