Storyline

Chatham, Ontario, 1998. Eighteen-year-old Jennifer Jenkins is brutally shot to death by multiple rifle rounds in her family home. The main suspect: her brother, Mason Jenkins, who fled the scene of the crime. After fabricating a story about what occurred, Jenkins was incarcerated. His parents, facing the loss of both their children, chose to support his claims of innocence, repressing the dark secret of their son's true intentions. Concurrently shocking and heartbreaking, John Kastner's finely crafted mystery slowly reveals the many layers of a family dynamic that becomes its own enigma, drawing from a decade's worth of coverage, including police interrogation videos, home movies, and incredible interviews with Jenkins, his family, and the case's investigators. With a skillful eye that eschews sensationalism, Kastner delves beyond the details of the murder to capture the pain of paternal devotion as Jenkins' parents struggle to hold onto the last shreds of their family. Led by the ... Written by Los Angeles Film Festival

23 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is so representing of society today, we have a 4 person family weighing in at over a half a ton, this is amazing, nobody thinks there's anything wrong with that, the word no does not exist in a family like this, the indulgence is beyond obscene. watching how the do things in canada, the amount of services being extending now makes me sick, he is beyond scary looking, until we realize that we need to so the compassionate thing ans put people like this asleep, your son and daughter sit down a eat 8 large pizzas and no one does anything about it and someone wonders why he killed his sister, do you realize the amount of food you need to get to 320 lbs, where are the parents, oh eating with them, the one relative comment that dad lost a 100 lbs like it was a bad thing, to give you a comparison, they way more than 9 servicemen entering ww2 this is the reward for overindulgence there still Canadian denial, the people i admired most in the word had sunk to a level that makes me cry
