The twisting, turning, stranger-than-fiction true story of the Brobergs, a naive, church-going Idaho family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter.
What starts off as a promising insight into Sam Cooke's career quickly turns into a conspiracy theory with little proof or objective points of view. Sam Cooke was a popular black entertainer and did at times raise social issues in his music but wasn't the object of government groups in the way that say Malcolm X was perceived due to his hate speeches regarding integration. This documentary is one sided and way too tipped in favour of a murder by those who knew him and never deals with Cooke's womanising and love of prostitutes that he was so known for. True he mixed in dangerous circles at times re equality but his temper was renowned when it came to woman which proved to be his downfall. No balanced evidence from the interviews is at any time shown in this film and opinion is simply biased and at no time factual. Is simply friends of Sam Cooke glamourising him and not dealing with the fact that his death was simply a prostitute too far or an attempted assault . A poor conspiracy theory of a documentary
