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.
Sam Cooke was killed 4 months after I was born, so the only thing that I knew about him was my fav, YOU SEND ME, and his other songs came after that. Watching this was interesting to me. Him being raised in a gospel family and joining a gospel group, only to leave and go secular and make it big time...he did his thing. It was fear of losing EVERYTHING that he had built and his vices that not only caught up to him, but got him killed...or so we're told. According to this, there is the truth told to the public and several alternatives that not many thought of, but still held in regard. VERY interesting. It was a documentary that was a long time coming and I'm glad that my buddy told me about it and had me jump on board.
