Synopsis
A pair of married small-town journalists take on the controversial Synanon organization with their expose forcing a government investigation and winning for them a Pulitzer Prize. Filmed in June of 1982 under the title "The Light on Synanon," it was based on the book of that name by Dave and Cathy Mitchell (since divorced) and Berkeley professor and expert in social control Richard Ofshe.
