According to the director himself, the plot is based on the story of the founder Ron Hubbard Church of Scientology. “I don’t know much about Scientology itself, but I’m pretty well aware of the origins of this movement. And that was what inspired me to create the picture and its images, '' said Thomas Anderson in an interview.
