about the show

Polygamy – the practice of taking multiple wives – is alive and well in Centennial Park, Arizona. The series follows several families living together in a community of like-minded Fundamentalist Mormons. The lifestyle has history that goes back generations, but their commitment to the faith is tested at every turn: financial struggles for a family of 22 all living in under one roof, the challenge of sharing a husband, accusatory stares in public, and the next generation’s commitment to continue “The Work.” While one of the town’s most respected elder’s own strong-willed children may be straying from the faith, another generation of dedicated young people are choosing this way of life, seeking inspiration and following the path of a polygamous life.
