I really enjoyed this documentary
2 December 2013 | by (Illinois, United States) – See all my reviews

As one who watches a lot of documentaries once I read about this documentary I was eager to watch it. It did not disappoint. As a product of small town Kansas I understood how a family and town could keep a secret, and how devastating it could be to finally be told the truth. The filmmaker did a great job in telling the story. No false moments. I do wish it was more available as I told several of my old Kansas friends (including my 85 year old mother) about it, but they weren't able to see it as Al Jazeera isn't available to most of them. The film stayed with me for a while. Maybe it's because I grew up with the same type of people in the same rural environment. Maybe it's because it was really well done. Anyway, this documentary is well worth your time.
