Polygamy is the act or condition of a person marrying another person while still being lawfully married to another spouse. It is illegal in the United States. It is a crime punishable by a fine or imprisonment.

But there are cases of modern polygamy in the US. One husband, chosen by multiple wives. This is a documentary telling a story of such unconventional family.

Polygamy is legal for Muslims in Lebanon, Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia. And in the US, polygamy is a remnant of the early teachings of the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

According to some estimates, there are 4.5 million Mormons in the US. Roughly 30 percent of them attended services regularly. Majority of them are white and non-Hispanic.

Most Mormons of them live in the North and South America, the South Pacific, and Western Europe.

Brady Williams, a former fundamentalist Mormon, and his wives star in a new reality series.
