The film is entirely based on interviews with Hugh Milne (one of Osho's former bodyguards) and Ma Anand Sheela, one of Osho's former secretaries during the Rajneeshpuram period.
The interviews are authentic, and are illustrated with lots of unique film material. It should be noted though --the film omits to do that-- that both have important interests in justifying themselves.
See an interview with the director for a flavor of it's background.
