What are Unveiled: Surviving La Luz Del Mundo all about?

The Plot of Unveiled: Surviving La Luz Del Mundo
The series tells the story of one of the most powerful religious groups in Mexico, where it was founded, and the United States, from the perspective of the survivors who met to share their stories of abuse, giving a voice to the men and women who were courageous enough to stand up and call out the heinous crimes.
The documentary series features never-before-seen footage as well as interviews with survivors and former LLDM members, many of whom are speaking for the first time. This comprises excerpts from victim testimonies in court that were played during the sentence.
It is told from the viewpoint of the abuse survivors, who came together on Reddit to exchange abuse-related stories. It’s unknown, according to Tiexiera, whether the allegations had an impact on membership because LLDM guards those figures.

What’s La Luz Del Mundo?
Aron Joaquin González established LLDM in 1926. Known collectively as “the Apostles,” Joaqun González was succeeded by his son and subsequently his grandson. A “divine revelation” is claimed to have appointed them. Several ex-Messengers have come forward with accounts of the group’s elaborate system for recruiting and fostering minors for abuse.
The events leading up to the arrest and prosecution of the current messenger, Naasón Joaqun Garca, in 2019 serve as the series’ climax. In exchange for his guilty plea, he received the maximum possible term of 16 years and 8 months in jail for three charges of sexual abuse against a child. Emails from the filmmakers with inquiries to the church have gone unanswered so far.
