One Of The Most Emotionally Devastating Documentaries Of All Time

The Film is entitled Dear Zachary: A Letter To His Son About His Father. When I started watching this film I knew literally nothing about the story. I was riveted for the entire hour and a half. And when it was done, I think I sat there in my living room in silence after the last of the credits for a solid ten minutes with my mouth wide open. I was emotionally drained by what I had just seen. It's not an overly graphic film. It's funny at times, infuriating throughout.. but mostly it is a story that the greatest fiction writer could not possibly dream up. The moral of course is tale of caution about who you allow into your life... Below is the trailer, and when he says at the end "But I never could have guessed what happened next." It is the understatement of the century.

I highly recommend you watch this film. It is a smack in the face from the cold hard reality of the depravity of humankind. LANGUAGE WARNING if you do end up watching the film.
