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

A quiet little movie that is full of emotion
22 September 2014 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie is not flashy or full of the beautiful people doing exciting things. It's 10 years after a family tragedy, a family ripped apart and not yet back together, afraid of asking questions when they might not want the answers. My heart was heavy every minute, always with the ultimate question, "What would I do?" I know the family is still suffering with pain and doubt, and my heart aches for them. I can't fault the parents for any of their choices. These people are such "normal folk" as they say. This movie makes me aware that even if you decide to be dull and normal, other people can rip that choice away from you, and then what do you do?
