Raise Your Kids on Seltzer2015

Terry and Tessa are married ex cult deprogrammers living in the San Francisco Bay Area. A "deprogrammer" is a professional contracted by families to kidnap people away from dangerous cults. Terry and Tessa's cryptic motto during their often verbally and physically abusive deprogramming process: "For those who'd rather not drink the Kool-Aid, raise your kids on seltzer, bubble per bubble!" For the last fifteen years, to make ends meet in an age when cults have become less prevalent, they have produced stylish, unintentionally humorous corporate media. When Terry and Tessa are suddenly called back into their old business, they realize they are rusty, and are hereby doing more harm to their new subject than good. Their unusual marital relationship, itself built on a number of strange domestic rituals, soon begins to unfurl... and reconstitute itself in a way that they did not expect.

People trying to live ordinary lives, and yet having desire to do some good, and make some money at the same time. Shows the intensity of family relationships, but doesn't give us enough info. I liked the use of regular people playing the parts; people who we could all identify with or who we may have in our own lineup of associates.

Innovative, gripping storyline, although the relationship backstory seems a little thin at points. Presents an emotionally charged example of the complexities of being the "good guys".
