The story revolves around the tragedy of two women who drove their six adopted children off a cliff of Northern California.

The documentary will be in an interrogative manner to cover the cold hard facts of the investigation. it will cover the child abuse allegations, the questionable adoption, the views of their friends on the news about it and so on. The couple was accused of hitting their adopted children, and not giving them food. 

In 2010, they were charged with domestic assault and malicious punishment by one of the children’s teachers. Jennifer Hart pleaded guilty to an abuse charge and was sentenced to 90 days in jail. This led the couple to move to Oregon but before they removed the children from school to homeschool them. This was unknown to their family and friends. 

The tragedy galvanized their entire community, at first in their defense, because the family seemed so committed to truth and social justice, but as the facts on the women regarding the adoptions and the condition of the children began to come out, it became harder to defend them. The documentary will also cover the death and the aftermath of the incident.
