The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Main character has an affair with another woman

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The overall tone of the film is very emotional and sad. The subject matter (missing persons, infidelity, murder, etc.) can be triggering. Nothing too shocking or scary though.
  • Very strong thematic elements. The documentary is about a man who had strangled his wife and smothered his two little girls to death. According to the father, he describes that one of the girls yells out "no, daddy" before he murders her. This might be very heartwrenching and disturbing to many viewers.
