In the 1990's a secretive cult called "The Order of the Solar Temple" was at the centre of several mass deaths in Europe and Canada.  Devoted followers believed that by committing suicide they would be transported to a new life on the star Sirius.  Anyone who wavered was murdered.  The cult was run by a charismatic homeopathic doctor and a paranoid businessman.  Together they recruited rich, educated professionals from around the world. 

Music in this episode performed and written by Lee Rosevere and Broke For Free.  News clips are courtesy of CBC news archives.
